No Matter to Whom He Speaks, Stanley 
Jones Has a Message and It Is Vital 

In his introduction the author avows this book was 
written under divine compulsion. While speaking to an 
audience in Singapore on the matter of meeting suffering 
in a Christian way he says: "It suddenly flashed through 
my mind that this was the subject for the next book. It 
seemed not a vagrant thought but an illumination from 
outside — clear, imperious, compelling." The book has a 
Chinese background as his other books have an Indian, 
illuminated by illustrations obtained by world-round asso- 
ciations. The author paints with vivid color the sorrows 
of mankind. He narrates the various ways of meeting 
these sorrows — combat them, ignore them, scorn them. 
Then vitally and magnificently and with original spiritual 
power he presents the Christian attitude of accepting 
suffering for the understanding of God and the enrich- 
ment of life.

$900.00 for single preachers and of $1,200.00 for married men. 

We suggest also that the plan to which they give attention shall be based 



32 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

on agreement to be entered into by all members of the Conference to contribute 
for the purpose a per cent of salaries above a figure to be agreed on. 

Third : We recognize that it will be impossible to work out a Conference-

Greensboro, Charlotte and Winston-Salem Districts be requested to appoint Com- 
mittees to put such a plan into effect in their districts this year.

BOARD OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION— REPORT NO. 1 



THE LOCAL CHURCH 

It is with considerable satisfaction that your Board is able to report an 
excellent understanding and co-operation on the part of pastors and church 
school leaders that make possible a more effective carrying forward of the 
work of your Conference Board. The reports of the staff indicate that the Con- 
ference program has been favorably received in every district in the Conference 
during the past year. 

Outstanding Features 

1. In accordance with the program ordered by the Conference at Winston- 
Salem a year ago, a staff organization has been set up in each Presiding Elder's 
District. 

2. Encouraging progress continues in the correlation of the college and the 
local church features of our program. 

The relations between Duke University and our local churches are becoming 
more intimate through the service of the professors and the students of the School 
of Religion in our training program. This service is highlv appreciated in our 
Conference. We feel that this work represents a significant step toward a program 
of Christian education in the Conference, in which the responsibility is recognized 
as mutual between our colleges ami our local churches. 

Continued progress has been made in the regular program of your Board. 
Vacation Church Schools, the observance of Childhood and Youth Week, our 
Standard and Cokesbury Training program, Missionary Education and Extension 
Work, the Conference Assemblies and the Methodist Student Conference have 
all had due emphasis this year, and the results show a healthv development. 

Recommendations for 1934 

1. The General Board of Christian Education plans for the celebration of 
the Sesqui-Centennial of American Methodism throughout our church. Your 
Conference Board pledges hearty co-operation with the General Board in these 
plans. We urge our local church schools to avail themselves of the special 
elective courses on Methodist History to be provided in our church school 
literature for adults and young people, and to enter into the celebration in 
everv other practicable way. We also have instructed our staff to use all means 
of co-operating with the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church in their Christian 
education during 19 3+, believing that active co-operation between our church 
and the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church is one effective way of celebrating 
the Sesqui-Centennial. 

2. A serious reduction in the income of the Board makes it necessary for 
your Board to recommend as an emergency measure the combination for the 
present of the duties of the Executive Secretary and those of the Extension 
Secretary. 

In doing this, we call attention to the fact that a certain percentage of the 
funds raised for Missions in the Sunday school, is under the law of the church, 
made available for the Extension work of this Board. These funds are morally 
and legally available solelv for the work of the Extension program. It will be 



Western North Carolina Conference 49 

necessary for the Conference to bear this in mind and thus make adequate pro- 
vision for the general work of the Board, if this is to be carried forward. 

Under our agreement with the General Board, these two offices must be 
separated as soon as our finances permit. 

The Board hereby expresses its appreciation of the fine and effective service 
rendered by Brother John F. Kirk, who has been Executive Secretary of the 
Board for the last three years. Under his leadership the regular lines of Board 
work have been carried forward, and the new provisions for the local church 
program have been launched and are now well under way. 

3. We recommend that in addition to carrying forward the regular lines 
of our program the following be made special points of emphasis for the coming 
year: 

(a) The organization of the Board of Christian Education in every local 
church congregation and careful and diligent attention to the study and promo- 
tion of the Program of Christian Education for the Local Church. 

(b) The stressing of the evangelistic emphasis throughout our entire pro- 
gram of Christian Education in the Local Church, and the effort everywhere 
both to discover those who are outside of the church and Sunday school and to 
lead those who are not Christians into a vital faith in Christ and membership 
in His church. 

(c) The continuance and enlargement of the Conferences and Assemblies 
at Lake Junaluska for both our young people and our adults. 

(d) A Leadership Training Program for pastors and district staff workers. 

4. We recommend as a necessary means of carrying on the program of this 
Board, that Sunday School Day be observed in all our local churches, and that 
all our schools be enlisted in the support of the Home and Foreign Missionary 
Enterprise, and that all moneys raised on Sunday School Day or for Missions 
in the Sunday school be promptly forwarded to the Treasurer of <he Board. 

5. We recommend the election of the following Board staff for the year 
1933-1934: 

With Salary: 

Executive Extension Secretary Rev. W. A. Kale 

Director of Children's Division Miss Corinne Little 

Office Secretary Miss Agnes Peacock 

Without Salary: 

Director of Young People's Division Rev. Fletcher Nelson 

Director of Adult Division Rev. C. P. Bowles 

REPORT NO. 2 

The Board observes with profound satisfaction the successful work of the 
Special Education Commission in bringing the Conference to a satisfactory policy 
concerning its education institutions. Duke University and Greensboro College, 
held in joint ownership with the N. C. Conference, and Brevard College will 
provide an adequate program of which the Conference may feel happily proud. 

The Board has had before it reports of Duke University. It is gratifying to 
note that this institution has steadily grown in number of students and in every 
other way, the present enrollment being larger than that of any previous year. 
In addition to the value of the endowment and plant and equipment, given below, 
the report lists special funds aggregating $1,697,884. 

The report from Greensboro College indicates that the administration has 
succeeded, through great voluntary sacrifice on the part of its officers and teachers, 
in balancing its budget. In many respects the college is in an unusually good 
condition. The present total enrollment shows an increase of 63 over the corres- 
ponding date of last year. 

The following statistics are gathered from the reports:

SPECIAL CONFERENCE EDUCATIONAL COMMISSION 
REPORT NO. 1 

Your Special Educational Commission, to whom was given the responsible 
task of merging Rutherford College and Weaver College in one Co-educational 
Junior College, and of merging Davenport College with Greensboro College, 
beg leave to submit for your information the following report: 

The task assigned us has turned out to be much more complex, and has 
required more time than the Annual Conference had supposed necessary, and 
has proved to be much more difficult than your Commission had at first thought 
it would be. Nevertheless, we report much work done and most satisfactory 
progress made. Indeed, in certain important particulars, our work has proved 
more fruitful and promising than at the beginning either we or the Conference 
could have hoped for. 

The Commission wish, at the outset, to express appreciation of the spirit of 
co-operation displayed by the officers and trustees of Rutherford, Weaver, and 
Davenport Colleges. Also we wish to thank the officers and trustees of Greens- 
boro College for their co-operation in enabling us to come to a complete under- 
standing of their financial condition. Without this co-operation we could not 
have proceeded. 

Your Commission found it necessary to employ an attorney and go very 
carefully into all legal matters and especially into the financial condition of all 
colleges concerned. The Commission was fortunate in securing the services of 
Mr. Wm. H. Bobbitt, of the firm of Stewart and Bobbitt, Charlotte, N. C. 

I. CONCERNING THE TEMPORARY MERGING OF THE EDUCA- 
TIONAL PROGRAM AND STUDENT BODIES OF WEAVER AND RUTH- 
ERFORD COLLEGES IN THE BUILDINGS OF DAVENPORT COLLEGE 
AT LENOIR. 

1. The Annual Conference had instructed the Commission to "merge the 
educational program and the student bodies of Rutherford and Weaver Colleges 
and to carry on this program in the present buildings and with the material 



Western North Carolina Conference 53 

equipment of Davenport College at Lenoir. This to be effected at the earliest 
practicable time." 

The Commission is under the necessity of reporting to the Conference that 
we found it not only impracticable to carry out your instructions in this par- 
ticular, but wholly impossible. In the first place, there was no dormitory at Daven- 
port for boys, and no suitable rooming and boarding facilities were available. 
And in the next place, we had no money with which to carry on any sort of 
institution. For when we saw what apportionments had been made for Christian 
Education and considered that we had no reason to believe that the income on 
Annual Conference assessments would be any larger this year than it was last, 
and when we subtracted from possible income those items that had prior claim 
we were left without any assurance of any money whatsoever for the suggested 
temporary Co-educational Junior College at Lenoir. Again and again your 
Commission returned to the consideration of this matter, but we found no way 
whereby the temporary school at Lenoir could be opened. 

2. Your Commission, desiring as far as possible to carry out the will of 
the Conference, and considering that the Conference had at no time contemplated 
the complete cessation of all Junior College work during the present school 
year, then passed a resolution that if any of the Junior Colleges of the Confer- 
ence, Davenport, Rutherford, or Weaver, should see fit to operate for another 
year, the Commission would offer no objection, it being understood, however, 
that no additional financial obligations were to be incurred by these colleges. 
Davenport College found it impossible to operate under these conditions and so 
did Rutherford College. Weaver College gladly accepted the opportunity to 
continue another year, and we are informed has had a very successful opening. 
Thus the Junior College work of the Conference has not been entirely discon- 
tinued. 

II. CONCERNING THE MERGING OF WEAVER AND RUTHERFORD 
COLLEGES IN A NEW CO-EDUCATIONAL JUNIOR COLLEGE WITH 
A NEW NAME AND CHARTER. 

1. Location. In determining the location of the new Junior Co-educational 
College, it was necessary for the Commission to take into consideration both the 
character of the educational service to be rendered by the new institution and 
the real estate, buildings, and other resources available and necessary for the 
work of the new institution. 

Your Commission gave much time to the consideration of the location. It 
was found that we could not go to Lenoir because there were no sufficient lands 
available for the purposes of a Co-educational Junior College, and no additional 
resources were offered, or were available. We visited Cleveland Springs, near 
Shelby, where beautiful grounds might have been had, but there were no build- 
ings on the grounds and no money for buildings was offered. We made a visit 
to Rutherford College, where there were ample grounds and buildings with 
which we might have made a beginning, but the indebtedness lying against 
that institution was too great for your Commission to assume, or recommend to 
the Annual Conference to assume by carrying this over into the new institution. 
Also we visited Weaverville and went carefully over the grounds and buildings. 
Certain individuals had made most liberal offers of lands and money. But the 
buildings were not adequate and the money offered, while representing a noble 
spirit of self-sacrifice and Christian liberality on the part of some, did not hold 
out the promise of doing all that the Annual Conference had in mind when it 
set up our Commission. 

In the meantime another factor had entered into the question, and this, in 
the end, became the determining element in reaching a decision. The Woman's 
Missionary Council, suffering for the want of money in these times of financial 
distress, had decided to concentrate their efforts at Vashti School, Thomasville, 



54 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

Ga., and, after careful thought and much prayer, the women of the Council 
offered their properties at Brevard to the Western North Carolina Conference 
in fee simple and free from debt. As will be reported to you in more detail, 
these properties represent buildings in good condition, ready to occupy at any- 
time, approximately $4,000.00 worth of equipment of one sort or another, and 
one hundred and six acres of land, including one of the most beautiful and 
productive farms in North Carolina. 

The Commission have, therefore, accepted for the Conference, the generous 
offer of the Woman's Missionary Council, and have located the new Co-educa- 
tional Junior College at Brevard, North Carolina. 

The Commission, having selected Brevard as the site for the merged institu- 
tion, found it wise to take over the properties offered the Conference, since 
the women were vacating and concentrating at Vashti. 

Title to all this property has been passed and the Commission take great 
pleasure in presenting to the Western North Carolina Annual Conference from 
tlie noble women of the Woman's Missionary Council properties worth, at a 
conservative estimate, not less than $250,000.00. 

In addition to this notable gift the Commission report to the Conference 
liberal gifts from the people of Brevard, all of which are listed and set forth 
in a separate report. 

'2. Name. Acting under your instruction to determine the name of the 
new institution, your Commission have chosen the name Brevard College. 

3. Charter and Trustees. In accordance with your instructions, the Com- 
mission have prepared a form of charter and have nominated a Board of 
Trustees for Brevard College. These appear under the recommendations here- 
inafter submitted by the Commission. 

4. Completing the Merger. The Commission had hoped to complete the 
merger of Rutherford College and Weaver College before this session of the 
Annual Conference, but we encountered obstacles which must be reported to 
this Conference. 

The Annual Conference had ordered that "the available resources of each 
of these institutions shall be used in the payment of its own indebtedness before 
the merger shall be effected. Any other merger shall be null and void." Your 
Commission found that "the available resources" of Rutherford College would 
fall far short of "paying its own indebtedness," and, further, that these resources 
could not be made available immediately for the purpose. Your Commission 
have, therefore, been under the necessity, in consideration of men who are 
carrying financial obligations, as well as in consideration of the honor of the 
church, to give the Trustees of Rutherford College ample time to effect liquida- 
tion, and, accordingly, in our recommendations concerning this matter, we are 
going as far as we believe the Conference should go and will want to go at 
this time. 

In the case of Weaver College, there is only a small indebtedness against the 
institution which is not sufficient to jeopardize the new institution. Your Com- 
mission see no reason, therefore, to delay the immediate merging of Weaver 
College with Brevard College and the assuming by the new institution of the 
indebtedness of Weaver College. The assets and liabilities of Weaver College 
will be itemized and fully set forth in another report from* this Commission. 

What has been done in carrying out the instructions of the Conference con- 
cerning Davenport and Greensboro Colleges, and the recommendations in regard 
to the same will appear in Report No. 3 of the Commission.

SPECIAL CONFERENCE EDUCATIONAL COMMISSION 
REPORT NO. 2 



RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING WEAVER, RUTHERFORD AND 
BREVARD COLLEGES 

The charter of Brevard College, with the Trustees nominated, is herewith 
submitted for your adoption. 

1. Method of Procedure. Looking toward the carrying out of the will of 
the Annual Conference in the merging of Weaver College and Rutherford 
College, your Commission respectfullv suggest the following method of pro- 
cedure : 

(a) That the Conference adopt the charter for Brevard College and elect 
the Board of Trustees, with instruction that Brevard College be straightway 
incorporated; 

(b) That the Conference instruct that Weaver College be merged with 
Brevard College. Brevard College, according to the law of the State of North 
Carolina, to take over all the assets anil liabilities of Weaver College; 

(c) That the Conference, without assuming any legal obligations in con- 
nection with the affairs of Rutherford College, give the Board of Trustees of 
Rutherford College further time to effect liquidation before its final merger 
with Brevard College is effected; 

(d) That the Conference instruct that when the Board of Trustees of 
Brevard College shall have been elected, a meeting of that Board of Trustees 
be called before the adjournment of this Annual Conference for organization; 

(e) That the Conference instruct the Board of Trustees of Weaver College 
also to meet during the session of this Conference, and that it further instruct 
the Board of Trustees of Brevard College, as soon as incorporated, and the 
Board of Trustees of Weaver College each to take the steps necessary under the 
law to merge in the consolidated institution, to be named Brevard College, 
Incorporated, under the same charter of incorporation adopted by this Confer- 
ence and with the same Board of Trustees elected by this Conference for Brevard 
College, said merger to become effective with the close of the present Weaver 
College school year. 

2. Continuation of the Commission. We recommend, in order to attend 
to all legal matters involved in the merger, and to carry out the will of the 
Conference in regard to the merging of Weaver and Rutherford Colleges in 
the new institution, that the Educational Commission, consisting of Bishop 
Edwin D. Mouzon, I. F. Craven, G. R. Jordan, J. T. Mangum, E. K. McLarty, 
J. F. Spruill, and J. W. Shackford, be continued; and that the Conference 
Board of Christian Education be authorized and instructed to fill any vacancies 
that may occur in the Commission during the year. 

3. In view of the character of other educational institutions already estab- 
lished in the state, and in view of the large number of boys and girls desiring 
a college education but financially' unable to attend these institutions, and in 
order to bring Brevard College within the financial reach of such boys and 
girls, and, at the same time, to provide a form of education that has its distinct 
advantages in character development and in preparation for useful living, your 
Educational Commission, having given careful consideration to this matter, 
recommend: 

THAT Brevard College be projected and conducted as a self help junior 
college for boys and girls, and that provision be made for participation of the 



56 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

students in such phases of farming and industry as may be practicable and as 
may seem economically and educationally desirable and otherwise feasible.

Western North Carolina Conference 59 

SPECIAL CONFERENCE EDUCATIONAL COMMISSION 
REPORT NO. 3 



CONCERNING THE MERGING OF DAVENPORT AND GREENSBORO 
COLLEGES AT GREENSBORO 

At the 1932 sessions of the North Carolina Conference and of the Western 
North Carolina Conference an Inter-Conference Educational Commission, con- 
sisting of W. A. Stanbury, R. L. Flowers, and E. C. Few, for the North Caro- 
lina Conference; and W. W. Peele, G. Ray Jordan, and J. F. Spruill, for the 
Western North Carolina Conference, was appointed to consider inter-conference 
educational matters that might arise during the year. 

Early in the spring of this year your Special Educational Commission, in 
carrying forward the instructions of the Conference concerning the merging of 
Davenport and Greensboro Colleges at Greensboro, requested "The members of 
the Inter-Conference Committee from the North Carolina Conference to co- 
operate with the members of the Inter-Conference Committee representing the 
Western North Carolina Conference, and with the assistance of Bishop Edwin 
D. Mouzon, and with the advice of counsel, to work out all details necessary 
to complete this merger, and to provide for carrying on the work of these two 
institutions until the merger here provided for shall have been completed." 

The report of the work of this Inter-Conference Committee is made now to 
this Conference in this Report No. 3 of your Educational Commission. 

Two things were necessary in preparing the way for the merging of these 
institutions as directed by the Conference: The preparation of a form of charter, 
and the nomination of a Board of Trustees. 

A form of charter for the merged institution was submitted to the Trustees 
both of Greensboro and Davenport Colleges and each Board was invited to make 
suggestions of any modifications desired. These suggestions, so far as seemed 
practicable, have been incorporated in the form of the charter that is herewith 
submitted. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. We recommend that the name of the institution resulting from the merg- 
ing of Davenport College and of Greensboro College be the hyphenated name 
of Greensboro-Davenport College. 

2. The form of charter for the new Greensboro-Davenport College is 
herewith submitted for vour adoption. 

3. The Trustees nominated for Greensboro-Davenport College are as follows: 

C. A. Bray Mrs. Glenn Long 

J. B. Craven Marvin Wade 

J. E. Lambeth C. S. Wallace 

G. T. Rowe Mrs. M. H. Courtney 

Frank C. Sherrill F. C. Odell 

L. D. Thompson Miss Anna Ogburn 

G. T. Adams Dr. Dred Peacock 

E. L. Hillman M. T. Plyler 

A. J. Hobbs Miss Nannie Lee Smith 

4. We recommend that the Conference instruct the Boards of Trustees of 
Davenport and Greensboro Colleges to meet at the earliest practicable time, and 
each to take the necessary steps to merge in the consolidated Greensboro-Daven- 
port College, under the charter adopted by this Conference, and with the Board 
of Trustees elected by the Conference. 



60 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

5. In order to represent the Conference in co-operation with the North 
Carolina Conference in the completion of the merger of Greensboro and Daven- 
port Colleges, we recommend that W. W. Peele, J. F. Spruill, and G. Ray 
Jordan, be appointed to act with a like number from the North Carolina Con- 
ference as an Inter-Conference Commission, with power, to complete this merger. 

{>. We recommend that the Conference request the Trustees of Greensboro- 
Davenport College to consider the advisability of operating an academy at 
Lenoir, North Carolina, in the buildings of the former Davenport College.

AN ITEMIZED LIST OF BREVARD PROPERTIES WITH TITLES TO 

SAME. STATEMENT OF ALL ASSETS AND LIABILITIES OF 

DAVENPORT, GREENSBORO, WEAVER AND 

RUTHERFORD COLLEGES 

Your Commission has been most fortunate in securing the donation of the 
following properties for Brevard College : 

The property belonging to what was known as Brevard Institute, consisting 
of about 106 acres of splendid farm land in a high state of cultivation with about 
sixteen acres in an apple orchard; with the following buildings located on it: 

An administration building constructed of brick, offices, class rooms, labora- 
tories, and auditorium that will scat about 250 people, and heating plant; a 
modern brick dormitory for girls, built about five years ago, that will accommo- 
date about ninety-five girls, with a large basement built for laundry work, together 
with an up-to-date heating plant; the boys brick dormitory, known as Fannie 
Ross Hall, built about eight or ten years ago, that will room about 80 boys, 
with heating plant; Taylor Hall, a large brick building, which is now being 
repaired and made modern by the citizens of the town of Brevard and without 
cost to your Commission. This building is being reconditioned for dormitory 
purposes with a kitchen and central dining room for the college. 

There are also three residences located on the campus of the college and on 
the farm some distance awav is a modern dairy barn. 

This property was deeded on September 20, 1933, by the Woman's Home 
Mission Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, a Mississippi corpora- 
tion, and Board of Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, a Ten- 
nessee Corporation, to E. D. Mouzon, I. F. Craven, G. R. Jordan, J. T. Mangum, 
E. K. McLarty, J. W. Shackford, and J. F. Spruill, Trustees, and their successors 
in office, to their only use and behoof forever in trust that said lands and premises 
shall be used, kept, maintained and disposed of for the purpose of Christian Edu- 
cation, subject to the order and direction of the Western North Carolina Confer- 
ence of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. 

This deed is recorded in Book 66, page 142 et seq. in the office of the 
Register of Deeds for Transylvania Countv, North Carolina, the original of 
which is in the hands of W. H. Bobbitt, attorney for the Commission. 

The above property is well located, is attractive and has no indebtedness 
against it. Its estimated value is about $250,000.00. 

In addition to the above property, your Commission obtained gifts of various 
other properties from the Commissioners of Transylvania County and various 
citizens in and around Brevard, as follows: 

On July 14, 193 3, 1,617 acres from W. E. Breese, Trustee for the Com- 
missioners of Transvlvania County, deed for which is in the hands of W. H. 
Bobbitt, attorney for the Commission. 

It is understood that this land is located some distance from the above de- 
scribed property and consists mostly of woodland; among other things, it is 
expected to be used by the students of Brevard College in the study of forestry. 

There is another deed dated July 14th, 193 3, for a five-sixth undivided 
interest in two tracts of land, one containing 7.2 5 acres and the other 10.57 
acres, made by J. H. Pickelsimer and others, deed for which is in the hands of 
W. H. Bobbitt, attorney for the Commission. The other one-sixth undivided 
interest in this land is owned by minors. 

On July 14th, 193 3, a deed made by C. W. Pickelsimer and wife to the 



68 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

Commission for two lots Nos. ^4 and ^ ^ on Hilt Street in the town of Brevard, 
deed for which is in the hands of W. 11. Bobbitt, attorney tor Commission. 

Ami also a deed made July 1+th, 1933, by Mrs. Carrie Zachary and others 
to the Educational Commission ot the Western North Carolina Conference of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, for an one-half undivided interest in 
two lots located on Franklin Street in Brevard, the first containing about three- 
fourths of an acre and the second about one-fourth of an acre, deed for which 
is in the hands of W. 11. Bobbitt, attorney for Commission. It is suggested that 
another deed be secured for this property made to the new Board of Trustees 
of Brevard College, naming them and their successors in office. 

We also secured a lease dated July 14th, 193 5, from Miss Florence Kearn, 
for a term of two years from date of same on a seven-room house and lot located 
in Brevard, which is in the hands ot \V. H. Bobbitt, attorney for Commission. 

In addition to the above, the town of Brevard has agreed with the Commis- 
sion to furnish free water to Brevard College for a period of six years. 

There is also a tract of land containing about thirty-one acres to be con- 
veyed to the Commission by Brevard Building and Loan Association, which deed 
has not up to this time been executed. The town of Brevard further donated 
some real estate but found when it started to make deed, a defect in the title 
to same and a good deed could not be made at that time. Your Commission is 
informed that the town authorities are. taking the necessary legal steps to have 
the defect of title cured so that it may execute a good deed to the Commission 
for this property. 

Your Commission is informed that a reasonable market yalue of all of the 
above property at this time is $ .

SPECIAL CONFERENCE EDUCATIONAL COMMISSION 
REPORT NO. 5 

Your Commission have given a great deal of time to the consideration of 
the problems of Rutherford College and have earnestly sought to find some 
satisfactory solution. As already reported to you, in view of the conditions, we 
could not recommend merging Rutherford College at this time with Brevard 
College; and, in asking that further time be given to the Trustees of Rutherford 
College for the liquidation of the indebtedness lying against that institution, we 
have done so with the desire that every possible consideration be given to the 
honor of the Conference anil to those brethren who are financially obligated for 
the debts of Rutherford College. 

Inasmuch as any action of the Conference in this matter must necessarily 
be based upon a knowledge of the facts, the Commission feels that it cannot do 
other than to present a brief statement of these facts and that it cannot at this 
time go further than to make the recommendation that follows: 

From the best information obtainable by the Educational Commission, the 
indebtedness of Rutherford College is approximately as follows: 

First Mortgage Bonds on Real Property $14,000.00 

Second Mortgage Bonds on Real Property 29,000.00 

Due to Banks 12,000.00 

Due to Teachers for Salaries, Various Notes, Accounts Payable, etc. — . 29,000.00 

Total ___ $84,000.00 

Of the $29,000.00, Second Mortgage Bonds, the Commission is informed bv 
the Board of Trustees of Rutherford College that in December, 193 3, $10,000.00 
of this amount was purchased by the Board of Trustees of Rutherford College 
with the Trust Funds of the institution, and is held by them as an endowment. 

The Commission has been informed that the remaining $19,000.00 secured 

by Second Mortgage Bond, due in , 193 8, were purchased by 

various persons upon presentation that the security behind these bonds "was ample. 

It is clear that there is no legal obligation upon the part of the Conference. 
The Boa id of Trustees of Rutherford College has no legal right to make the 
Conference a party to any of its obligations. The Conference is not a body 
corporate, and cannot make debts, nor can it sue or be sued. 

We believe, however, that the Conference can make a donation in any amount 
it sees fit for the purpose of aiding in the payment of any part of the obligation 
of Rutherford College. 

We, therefore, recommend: 

THAT the Conference Treasurer be instructed to pay each year for the next 
four years to the Treasurer of the Board of Christian Education the sum of

with Brevard College; therefore be it 

RESOLVED: That under the direction and by the authority of the Western 
North Carolina Conference, we, the Board of Trustees of Weaver College, will 
transfer to Brevard College, Incorporated, all assets, real and personal, and all 
liabilities of Weaver College, said transfer to be completed within sixty days 
after the close of the academic year, 1933-1934. 

It was moved by C. M. Pickens and W. A. Newell to adopt the foregoing 
resolution. Motion carried. There being no further business, the Board adjourned. 

H. A. DUNHAM, Chairman, 
B. M. CROSBY, Acting Secretary. 



BOARD OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 



PUBLISHING HOUSE 
Our Publishing House, in the face of changing conditions, continues to 
furnish good books and periodicals at the lowest prices consistent with produc- 
tion costs. By an extensive comparison we find that the prices of our Sunday 
school literature and other periodicals are less in proportion than may be secured 
elsewhere. The Christian Advocate most creditably represents the thought and 
life of our denomination; it contains important information concerning religious 
movements within our church and throughout the world. No church has a weekly 
paper with higher merit. The publishers have used vigorous methods to circulate 
it, and the aid of the ministers and laymen in this Annual Conference in securing 
a large number of subscriptions is earnestly solicited. 

THE NORTH CAROLINA CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE 

The immediate concern of the North Carolina Christian Advocate is the year 
ahead. The perilous condition of our Advocate family, the reduced income from 
subscriptions and the reduced hours under the NRA call for co-operation on the 



74 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

part of all if we are to continue to issue a paper such as we so much need in 
North Carolina. Individuals, boards and institutions of our church must turn all 
job work possible to our shop, and a united and continuous effort be made to 
circulate the Advocate. Pastors, the superannuates, willows, shut-ins, on the recom- 
mendation of pastors, get the paper free. This entails a cost of approximately 
$3,000. In these last five years advertising has dropped from $12,193.03 to 
$3,027.74 this year. Even with the drastic economies made, the situation calls 
for united action. 

Men of thought and discrimination say the Advocate has come to be more 
than a church organ, that it is a positive social, moral and religious force in the 
life of the state. If we, as a church, expect to be a real force in the life of 
our people, the output of the printing press cannot be neglected. This costs 
money, sweat and blood. 

We urge the payment of all accounts due the Advocate, whether large or 
small, and that all individuals, boards and institutions, such as our colleges, turn 
all possible business towards our print shop, and that pastors show increased 
diligence in securing renewals and new subscriptions. This must be done if our 
paper is to keep going these tense times. 

We recommend that the Conference elect D. B. Coltrane to succeed himself 
on the Methodist Board of Publication, and that Bishop Mouzon appoint A. W. 
Plvler, Editor and Assistant Business Manager of the Advocate. 

A. W. PLYLER, Chairman, 
W. A. BARBER, Secretary. 



BOARD OF MISSIONS 



Your Board of Missions has given prayerful consideration to the work com- 
mitted to it. 

This has been a most difficult vear. World-wide economic conditions are 
reflected in lessened income and, therefore, reduced appropriations. Nevertheless 
we find occasion for taking courage. The Board is able to make appropriations 
totaling an amount only 10% smaller than the level for last year. 

The Duke Endowment has made possible to our Conference many advanced 
movements, manv comforts and withal a greatly enlarged field of service. This 
appears from the following report: 

From November 1, 1932, through October 3 1, 1933: 

Church Building Fund: 

Number of appropriations 1 

Amount appropriated _ $ 2,385.00 

Church Maintenance Fund:

BOARD OF CHURCH EXTENSION 

The Board has carefully considered each application presented and has allot- 
ted funds coming into its hands for distribution to the best of its ability. The 
amount received for distribution is smaller than it has been for some years. 
Many worthy projects have been presented and it is a matter of regret to the 



78 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

Board that it lias not been able to grant in many instances the full amounts 
requested. 

Many applications were not fully completed and the members of the 
Board were unable on this account to get such information as would mable 
them intelligently to pass on the projects. This matter has been emphasize! in 
our annual reports to the Conference for many years, and the co-operation of 
pastors and Presiding Elders is earnestly requested so that there may be no delay 
in giving consideration to applications. Many applications are not handed to our 
Secretary until after Conference has convened. We desire to stress the importance 
of sending in applications to our Secretary at least ten days in advance of the 
opening date of the Annual Conference so that any omissions or corrections may 
be made before being presented to our Board for consideration. 

We wish again to emphasize the importance of carrying adequate fire insur- 
ance on all church property. 

An allotment of $200.00 to College Place Church and $300.00 to Chapel 
Hill Church has been made by this Board to apply on interest on indebtedness 
of these churches on the condition that the Boards of Missions and Church 
Extension of the North Carolina Conference and Board of Missions of the 
Western North Carolina Conference make appropriations for the same purpose. 

In addition to the above, the following donations have been granted:

Grove, Tabernacle, Park Avenue, Tusquittee, Reeds. 

J. H. BARNHARDT, Chairman, 
G. B. HOWARD, Secretary. 



BOARD OF FINANCE 

Owing to the continued annual decrease of funds available for the use of this 
Board, we strongly recommend the Presiding Elders and pastors to give serious 
thought and action to the requests of this part of our church activity. Some of 
our claimants will suffer because of the lack of adequate support. 

Your Board has suffered a decrease of over $5,000.00 this year as compared 
with last year. 

Rev. C. S. Kirkpatrick has been chosen as the Director of the Superannuate 
Endowment Fund in the Conference. He is directed to use his own judgment 
as to the manner and time for presenting the cause for special emphasis.

COMMISSION ON BUDGET— REPORT NO. 2 

It is recognized that there are certain items of incidental expense that are 
matters of legal contract, and must be paid in full, yet your Commission on 
Budget calls the attention of the Conference to the condition that seems to prevail 
in many pastoral charges, namely, allowing whatever deficit there may be in the 
church budget to fall upon the Conference Collection. The incidental expense 
items, the pastor's salary, the Presiding Elder's salary, and other purely local 
items, are often met 100%, while the item of Conference Collection is robbed 
of part or all of its just proportion of the budget. As a matter of common 
honesty and justice, this practice should be ended. 

Your Commission would also direct your attention to PP 255 of the Discipline 
of 1930 which reads in part as follows: "that no Board of Stewards or pastor 
shall incur any indebtedness for the payment of the preacher's salary or the 
benevolences which indebtedness shall be left upon the ch-arge for the successor 
to raise." This phase of the law is being violated and its violation has become 
a handicap and a serious embarrassment to the churches and to the pastors who 
are called upon to raise these debts. 

No pastor can honestly report that everything is "paid in full" when money 
was borrowed to make such report possible. Since under our polity, no pastor can 
know that he will succeed himself on a charge, your Commission deems it an 
infraction both of the spirit and the letter of this law to create such indebted- 
ness in any year of a pastorate. It is not just that one pastor should pay the 



Western North Carolina Conference 83 

price of another's apparent success. In this respect, at least, every man should 
bear his own burdens. We recommend that the Conference Treasurer be instructed 
to give journal credit for no checks on Conference funds until such checks have 
cleared the banks, and in case any checks should be returned to the Treasurer 
unpaid, he be instructed to deduct the amount of such check from the report in 
the journal before it goes to press. 

We recommend that the apportionment for the Children's Home continue at 
an amount equal to 10 per cent of the pastor's salary for the current year; that 
the fifth Sunday offering by all our Sunday schools continue as a free-will 
offering to the Home; and that the fifth Sunday offerings and all other con- 
tributions for maintenance to the Home be reported in a separate column in 
the Conference Journal. 

We nominate Rev. E. O. Cole for Conference Treasurer at a salary of 
$300.00 per year.

JAMES E. LAMBETH, Secretary.

SUPERANNUATE ENDOWMENT FUND 

The Trustees report : 

(l ) That the terms of office of J. B. Ivey and M. D. Stockton, as Trustees, 
expire with this Conference, and their names are recommended by the Trustees 
for re-election for a term of four years. 

(2) That under the rule of the Conference the funds of this Endowment are 
invested in first mortgage real estate bonds. In the main, the real estate securities 
are considered ample to protect the respective loans, but on account of the 
depression in real estate values, there may be a few instances in which it may 
become necessary to foreclose, and in such contingency, it- is important that the 
Trustees be authorized to bid in or buy the property, if necessary, to protect the 
loans, and the authority of the Conference is asked to that t:nd. 

(3J The Treasurer's account, duly audited, is being filed herewith for the 
current year, and asked to be taken as a part of this report, the interest check 
being $7,5 1 5.08.

CONFERENCE TRUSTEES 

The Conference Trustees submit herewith the annual cash report of our 
Treasurer. 

As a means of protecting the interests of our Conference and of our Chil- 
dren's Home, your Trustees unanimously recommended the transfer of $40,- 
000.00 first mortgage bonds, known as our Heath Fund, in order to save 
unnecessary taxes and to facilitate foreclosure proceedings; these bonds were 
transferred to Wachovia Bank & Trust Company, Trustees for Children's Home, 
Inc., in the early part of this year. We ask that you approve this action in the 
adoption of this report. 

The stock assessment of $500.00 by Citizens Bank of Yancey, which we 
were required to pay in 1932, proved the beginning of a series of losses in 
interest income, frozen bank deposits, foreclosure sales, tax assessments anil 
other expenses which, we regret to say, left us without funds to pay our super- 
annuates and the other worthy causes to which we have contributed annually. 

Warranty deeds have been secured by foreclosure proceedings to replace bonds 



$6 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

which we held in the total amounts of $40,825.00. It will Likely be necessary 

for us to make other foreclosure sales during the coming year. 

The following officers of our Board have been electee! for the ensuing year: 

J. B. I'vey, Chairman; C. C. Weaver, Vice-Chairman ; A. W. Plvler, Secretarv- 

Xreasurer,

HOSPITAL BOARD 

The Hospital Board submits the following: 
Si C [TON I : 

We wish to make the following report for the Hugh Chatham Hospital for 
the year ending October, 193 3. 

Eight hundred and sixteen patients have been admitted during the year, 
totaling 5,839 davs for care. Of this number, 197 received major operations 
and 2 IS received minor operations; 2 l H of the 816 patients were charity 
patients, totaling 1,738 davs of free care. These free patients represented every 
district in our Conference except Asheville, and cost the hospital $5,909.20. 
To this amount should be added 1,S64 days of free care for patients who were 
able to pay a small part of their expenses. This cost the hospital $6, 33". 60, 
making a total of free work done by the hospital in the amount of $12,246.80. 
We have received during- the year $24,92S.29 and have disbursed $24,650.70, 
leaving us with outstanding obligations of $862.07 and with accounts receivable 
in the amount of $16,717.89. The cost of operation has been reduced from 
$3.S5 per patient day to $3.40. 

At the beginning of this Conference year, the hospital had outstanding 
obligations as follows: 

Operating account $3,3+1.1 1 

Construction work on Nurses' Home 200.00 

Note to Board of Missions (to be paid in three equal installments) .... 4,500.00 



Western North Carolina Conference 87 

To meet these obligations the Golden Cross had on hand the sum of $1,138.- 
86. Since that time we have paid on the note held by the Board of Missions, 
$1,635.00, and reduced the outstanding obligations against the hospital and 
nurses' home from $3,411.11 to $800.00; have raised for the Golden Cross, 
aside from regular collections, $1,843.68; have equipped a laundry that has 
saved the hospital about $100.00 per month. 

In addition to the above, there has been raised and turned over Golden 
Cross funds to the hospital for operating expenses, $1,151.88. 

The General Hospital Board, at its meeting in St. Louis, agreed to take over 
the indebtedness of our Conference Board. Their Secretary, through a resolution 
passed by the General Board, executed a note for $3,000.00 to be paid with such 
interest and at such time satisfactory to the General Hospital Board and our 
Conference Board of Missions. 

There is, in the General Hospital Board at Atlanta, Ga., a sum of $25.33, 
held from the beginning of the hospital movement. We ask that they be author- 
ized, by action of our Conference, to apply this sum on this note due our 
Board of Missions. 

We are glad to announce that there has been a splendid increase in the 
enrollment of the Golden Cross Society this year, with an offering of more than 
$4,000.00. 
Section II: 

We recommend the confirmation of the following Directors for a period 
of three years: W. A. Neaves, Mason Lillard, and Alex Chatham, of Elkin, 
N. C, and Thurmond Chatham, of Winston-Salem, N. C. 

We recommend the appointment of Rev. L. B. Abernethy as Director of 
the Golden Cross, and Rev. E. J. Harbison as Assistant Director for the Con- 
ference.

BOARD OF TEMPERANCE AND SOCIAL SERVICE 

Since our last annual session, major changes have been made in the laws 
regulating our relations to the government and to one another. These changes 
are too recent for the church to attempt appraisal of their moral values. For 
the present we must use that well-worn phrase, "Noble experiment, moral in 
purpose." In common with all other institutions, the church must work under 
these regulations as it strives to bring moral integrity into the thought of the 
people concerning the relations affected by these changes. 

The Methodist Church will not recede from her historic position on certain 
great moral issues, such as: World Peace and International Good Will; Christian 
citizenship, giving unstinted support to the right side of every question; industrial 
relations, founded upon the will of Christ and the brotherhood established by 
him ; interracial co-operation, founded upon mutual respect for. human personality. 

The revolution now in progress necessitates a re-study of the very bases upon 
which our special compact rests, and rebuilding the structure of our inter- 
relations with one another, with the government, and with Almighty God. These 
relationships have not changed, but must be placed in the light of the new day 
as well as in the perspective of the New Deal. 

INTERNATIONAL RELATION'S 

The signing of the Kellogg Peace Pact in July, 1928, thrilled the heart of 
the world with a sense of security. Already both the spirit and the letter of 
the pact have been violated by Japan in her relations to China. Even more 
startling than this action on the part of Japan is the fact that no nation, indi- 



Minutes of the Forty-fourth Sessi 



on 



vidually, or the League of Nations, collectively, has made effectual protest against 
this violation of most solemn obligations. So we arc back again where invasion, 
rapine, and wholesale murder are perpetrated by a nation with whom inter- 
national treaties have become mere scraps of paper. 

Only the church can develop that fortitude of soul in which peace becomes 
imperative, and peaceful intent shall govern a world. In the face of these viola- 
tions, our own nation may, at any moment, find itself upon the brink of the 
bloodiest war in the history of the world. With a navy already massed in the 
Pacific Ocean; with the feverish action with which we rush to increase our 
navy, appropriating therefor hundreds of millions of dollars; with hundreds of 
thousands of boys and young men already massed in training camps, and with 
the recognition of Soviet Russia, it behooves the American citizen to give solemn 
thought to the implications of the situation. We must not again be hurried into 
war. 

RACIAL RELATIONS 

Just now racial relations demand a large place in our thinking. The formula- 
tion of codes governing the various industries has resulted in throwing many 
thousands of negroes out of employment. It will not be easy for them to regain 
the position from which they have been thrust by the exigencies of the N.R.A. or 
the "National Recovery Act." A law which may be good in itself may become 
desperately evil through its administration. Our people can do no less than see 
that the negro is retained in his historic position as a laborer in the industries 
of the South. While that position has been handicapped, and many hardships 
imposed upon the negro because of his color, to now deny him the means 
whereby he may earn a livelihood would be so unchristian as to merit the con- 
tempt of all men of good will. 

The negro just now is beset by another danger. His path is forever shadowed 
by the dark designs of cruel men. These designs encompass death itself, with 
or without provocation. Lynching is all the more degrading because men of 
depraved appetites, and in mass movement, commit murder with impunity^. Most 
men who engage in mob action are cowards at heart, and in union with the 
mob do those wicked things which craven fear inhibits in the individual. This 
degenerate type of mind is all the more dangerous when inflamed by alcohol. 
The legislation of beer by the legislatures of the several states and the exaltation 
of alcohol by the National Government, together with the base surrender of 
those charged with law enforcement, has already borne bitter fruit. Since March 
1st of this year we have had twenty-one mob murders in the South, all of the 
victims being negroes. This is a record of more lynchings in eight months than 
we hail in the twenty-six months preceding. Surely the recital of this bare fact 
might jar us wide awake to the growth of this disgraceful evil. 

This record would have been far worse had not certain brave men, worthy 
of our commendation, withstood the murderous mobs with such determination 
as to cow them. To our shame it must be told that certain other officials basely 
surrendered to the mob and retreated, leaving the victim in the hands of his 
pursuers. The vocabulary of the Christian contains no words to describe ade- 
quately an officer of the law who surrenders his prisoner to a mob when he 
knows that by so doing he has sentenced the victim of his cowardice to horrible 
torture and certain death. 

One of the things that should en^a^e the thought of all Christian people is 
the plight of our public schools. With an increasing population, public school 
facilities have been reduced. Through lack of teachers, many rooms in our public 
schools now stand unoccupied while little children are herded and crowded 
into rooms filled far beyond their intended capacity, where they must be taught 
bv teachers harassed by the knowledge that they cannot give proper instruction 
to such overcrowded units. To add to their burdens, the salaries of these over- 



Western North Carolina Conference 89 

worked teachers have been reduced below the level of the ignorant truck driver 
who collects the garbage from our alleys. No state that places a higher value 
upon garbage collection than it places upon immortal souls can long endure. 
The politicians who are responsible for such a situation will never correct it 
until they are forced to do so by an enlightened Christian sentiment and we 
should remember that politicians who deal in ignorance never learn. 

And we, as Christians, must remember that conditions in negro schools occupy 
that relatively inferior status which has always been assigned them. The present 
situation is deplorable indeed. These things are not political in any partisan 
sense, but have grown like weeds in fields long ploughed by prejudice and 
impoverished by neglect. The preservation of our public school system unimpaired 
is a form of conservation that should engage the support of every Christian. 
We are persuaded that the great mass of our negro population still trusts us 
and looks to us, motivated by a real affection and directed by helpful under- 
standing. 

TEMPERANCE 

The fact that the two Carolinas could not be driven or cajoled into support 
of the 21st Amendment to the Constitution is most gratifying to our citizenship. 
In this campaign, the churches have demonstrated their strength; political leaders 
who had attained unto a kind of prominence — and who played upon the misery 
of the people and the attendant confusion — are now on their way back to 
oblivion. Let us pay the honor due those other leaders who, at great sacrifice of 
time, strength and business and professional interests, gave themselves without 
stint or limit, during a period of weeks, to telling the truth about prohibition 
and law enforcement to large gatherings of people throughout North Carolina, 
and thus rallied the dry forces of the state to the preservation of prohibition 
within its borders. These two states are as dry land, emerging from an ocean 
of alcohol. The deluge has swept over the nation. The Carolinas must remain 
dry, for islands tend to become continents. Here is the muster ground upon 
which the armies of the Lord may again assemble and train for the ceaseless 
warfare against those intemperate evils ' which have so suddenly become the 
shibboleths of certain political leaders and the watchwords of the political plund- 
erers. We have beaten them in a fair fight, and shall continue to do so until 
the Kingdom come. It is the business of the church so to exalt conviction that 
it shall take precedence over prejudice. Let us make prohibition in North Caro- 
lina so efficient that our people shall prosper in all good things and continue 
their progress toward the establishment of a Christian state until that prosperity 
becomes the permanent possession of all the people. 

When the war for American liberty had been lost and the enemy had plund- 
ered the nation, the hill-men of the Carolinas struck at King's Mountain and 
Cowpens and Guilford Court House and, by so doing, established the nation. 
We can do it again. We will not follow after strange gods. Let the nation 
come back to us, that it may be a nation of sober men, and not a mob sodden 
in drinks. We lift up a standard to which the people may repair.

BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES 

The Board of Lay Activities submits the following report and recommenda- 
tions: 

We express deep appreciation and gratitude for the marked increase in the 
spiritual and economic life of our Conference, in which we are glad to hav.e 
had a part, though small. 



90 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 



In the days of unrest and chaos, we believe that the prime need of all our 
people is a re-birth of conviction and passion for the return to the paths of 
honesty, frugality and Godliness and that the practical application of the teach- 
ing's of Jesus affords our best method of providing a curative remedy for the 
ills of the world. We are in a day when the church is struggling with turbulent 
and reckless forces that have caused much apprehension in the industrial, econ- 
omic and social life of our people, and we believe that the outcome of this 
struggle is contingent upon our loyalty and devotion to the church, and it is 
here that the laymen meet their highest challenge and responsibility. In the light 
of these conditions we call upon all of our people everywhere to dedicate anew 
their lives, their money, their talents, their time in sacrificial service to the 
church and to stand solidly back of our pastors to the end that the work of 
the church may prosper and the extension of Christ's Kingdom may be promoted 
in the carrying out of His purposes in behalf of our people. 

We believe that we are God's stewards, and as such we owe to Him at least 
the tithe of our whole. We, therefore, suggest that our people adopt this method 
of giving and that "upon the first day of the week let everyone of you bring 
of your tithes as God has prospered you." We believe that then our financial 
difficulties will cease. 

We request that each station, charge and circuit, regardless of size or extent, 
conduct a complete every-member canvass and secure a weekly pledge, where 
possible, and that a balanced budget be carried up to each Quarterly Conference. 

We recommend that our Conference set aside a Sunday to be observed through- 
out its bounds as "Layman's Day" and that it be observed rigidly. 

We are sending to each of our preachers a subscription to the Methodist 
Layman and request that our laymen subscribe to this periodical and to the 
North Carolina Christian Advocate, as we feel that without these no layman can 
be entirely familiar with the work of our church. 

We regret to learn that, in some instances, our benevolences have suffered, 
due to the fact th.t these funds have been illegally diverted to meet local ex- 
penses and pastors' salaries. To the end that this practime may cease, we suggest 
that the preacher in charge be directly or indirectly responsible for the raising 
of our benevolences. 

We have elected C. E. Morgan, Secretary, and Thomas C. Hoyle, Treasurer. 

We express our appreciation of the faithful and efficient work of our Con- 
ference Lay Leader, Brother James E. Lambeth, and nominate him as Conference 
Lay Leader for the ensuing year and recommend his election.

THE CHILDREN'S HOME 

In 1910, when the Children's Home was only about a year old, Dr. G. H. 
Detwiler, then Chairman of the Board of Trustees, opened his report to the 
Western North Carolina Conference with the following significant paragraph: 

"We, your Board of Trustees, feel constrained to express our thanksgiving 
for the good providence which has so kindly guarded and so earnestly blessed 
the institution which you have entrusted to our care. We feel if there is any 
one spot where God's angels of mercy keep an unceasing vigil more than another, 
it is the sunny hillside where stands our Children's Home. We believe that in 
a special sense the guiding watchcare of our heavenly Father has been over us 



Western North Carolina Conference 91 

in the work of the past year and that in many ways beyond our wisdom has 
the work been guided by a hand unseen." 

That which was so fittingly said by Dr. Detwiler twenty-three years ago 
still holds good. Many evidences certify to the fact that our heavenly Father's 
richest benedictions have hovered over and around the fatherless and motherless 
children gathered in for your safe-keeping and direction. 

There are at present 341 resident children enrolled at the Home, 17 1 boys 
and 170 girls. These children range from three to nineteen years of age. Our 
mothers' aid family now numbers 122 children. It is, therefore, evident that 
your Children's Home is now providing for 463 children, 203 more children, 
101 resident children and 102 mothers' aid children, than were being provided 
for three and one-half years ago. 

Two great questions continue to challenge the interest and attention of your 
governing board. The first has to do with the rearing of children; the other 
with the financing of the institution. 

Our resident family of 341 children has been gathered in from the various 
sections of our Conference. Many of these children have come from very poor 
environment and from very distressing circumstances, some having been snatched 
from lives of certain criminality. They have come to the Children's Home for 
proper cultivation and direction in their development into useful and profitable 
lives. 

Three hundred and twenty-one of these children are in school, 86 of this 
number attending the Richard J. Reynolds High School, located outside our 
boundary limits. The records and attainments being achieved by these children 
and youths are very satisfactory and encouraging. Our high school boys and girls 
offer many evidences of development in curricula and extra-curricula activities. 
Our present senior class numbers twenty promising youths. 

Our vocational guidance work is valuable to our children and profitable to 
the home. Every child over about nine years of age has definite work to perform, 
this work being determined by the preference and aptitude of the youngster. 
Our family enjoys its work as well as its play. 

Our boys and girls have ample opportunity for play and social activities. 
A constructive athletic program is provided. Ample social features abound, thus 
providing for the instinctive desire of youths to mingle with one another in 
wholesome comradeship. Every effort is being made to make the training and 
surroundings at the Home prepare our youths for actual living. 

Religious training goes hand in hand with religious experience. Our children 
are taught through precept and example the Christian way of living. Every year 
witnesses a large number of our children joining the church. All children over 
nine years of age are members of the church and each one contributes to its 
budget. 

The second challenge your Board has to face is that of refinancing the insti- 
tution. Through very careful management and the strictest economy we are 
enabled to report that the Children's Home continues its operations free of 
debt. However, this record lias been attained at the expense of inadequate salaries 
and a curtailed extension program. We regret to report that financial receipts 
from the ten per cent apportionment and fifth Sunday offerings, congregational 
opportunities for sustaining our large foster family, show a continued decline. 
But for special contributions from individuals, Sunday school classes and 
missionary societies, the Children's Home wuold not be able to operate within 
its income. We urge that special effort be put forth during the ensuing year for 
an early raising of the ten per cent apportionment and that intensified effort be 
made for securing enlarged fifth Sunday offerings. We earnestly urge that these 
two sources of income be kept separate and that no fifth Sunday offerings be 



92 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

used to pay the ten per cent apportionment. An increased number of children 
cannot be properly provided for with a decreased income. 

James G. Hanes, of Winston-Salem; J. Raymond Smith, of Mount Airy; 
and E. R. Bucher, of Charlotte, have been elected to membership on your Board 
of Trustees and are submitted to you for confirmation.

COMMISSION ON SPIRITUAL LIFE 

\ our Conference Commission on Spiritual Life shares most heartily the 
following- appeal from the General Commission on Spiritual Life: 

"From the beginning the credentials of Methodism have been the evangelistic 
passion and the evangelistic message. Their one mission was to bring all men 
into a saving knowledge of the truth as it is in Christ Jesus. 

The normal mood of Methodism is the evangelistic mood. A Methodist 
Church which does not evangelize may have names and members, but it lacks 
meaning. There can be no effective substitute for the evangelistic passion. 

"In the beginning every Methodsit was an evangelist. They had more than 
a faltering hope that their sins were forgiven. They enjoyed the 'full assurance' 
of redemption. As a result there rose up a great crowd of witnesses — some of 
them rough and unlearned, but they knew their facts, and were hot and eager to 
bear testimony to the power of the living Christ. 

"The disintegration of the normal home life, the lack of reverence for law, 
the sag in the moral idealism of our people reveal that our world is sadly in 
need of redemption. Our help must come from God, or it comes not at all. Once 
our hearts are set on fire by the love of Jesus, the victory is assured. With a 
new vision of the Saviour, a more complete surrender to His mastery, and a new 
yielding to His redemptive purpose, with hearts gladdened and uplifted to His 
presence, let Methodists everywhere go forth to sing, 'O let me commend my 
Saviour to you'." 

Sharing these convictions we offer the following recommendations: 

1. That our pastors plan and practice constant observance of the morning 
watch, with a prayerful study and meditation upon the Word of God. 

2. That our pastors encourage parental evangelism through the family altar, 
and personal devotions, to the etui that there may be in the homes of our people 
a religious atmosphere for the encouragement of home religion. 

3. That we co-operate with the Department of Evangelism of the Federal 
Council of Churches in their program of Childhood and Youth Evangelism 
during the year l l >34. To do this we feel that our program of evangelism should 
be planned with the needs of our young people in mind. 

+. That evangelistic services be held in every church, with the prayerful 
appeal both from the pulpit anil in personal interviews, reminding the people 
that "Jesus identified Himself with broken and disinherited outsiders; with the 
lost, the least, and the last." 

5. Thar as a part of our Easter program a service of meditation, inspiration, 
and consecration be arranged for the hours between twelve a'nd three o'clock on 
Good Friday. This service may be a union service. 

6. That our District Conference programs provide for one-half day to be 
set apart for emphasis upon spiritual life, giving prominence to the subject of 
evangelism. We earnestly request our Presiding Elders to provide time for this 
important interest of our church.

MANAGERS OF PASTORS' SCHOOL 

The 193 3 Pastors' School met at Duke University last June and was, in many 
respects, the most successful school ever conducted. Several instructors have 
already been lined up for the school of l l .>3 + and there is reason to believe that 
the interest will be increasing. 

For the first time the school co-operated with the Institute of International 
Relations, being held simultaneously with the sessions of the Pastors' School. 
This is the first time a session of the Institute of International Relations has been 
held in the South. 

Present plans are for the Institute and the School to co-operate in their work 
at Duke next June. 

For the benefit of preachers serving mission charges, this Board has suggested 
scholarships, not to exceed $10.00 each, the total amount so expended not to 
exceed $200.00. Money so granted shall be expended for the payment of ex- 
penses incurred in attending the Pastors' School and shall be made available on 
the closing day of the School. Only those receiving two units of credit shall be 
considered eligible for these scholarships. The scholarships are to be awarded 
after consultation and in co-operation with the Presiding Elders of the two 
Conferences. 

The Executive Committee of this Board at its meeting in July, 193 3, passed 
the following resolution: It was moved by J. F. Kirk that we request the Board 
of Missions of each of the supporting Annual Conferences to increase its appro- 
priation $100.00 in view of certain scholarships to be granted to pastors work- 
ing on mission charges. M. T. Plvler and J. M. Ormond were appointed to 
present this matter to the Board of Missions of the North Carolina Conference. 
H. G. Hardin and W. B. West were appointed to present the matter to the 
Board of Missions of the Western North Carolina Conference. This motion was 
carried. 

It is expected that at Duke University next June an institute designed primarily 
for rural ministers in all the denominations in the state of North Carolina and 
adjacent territory will be held. It is hoped that the Pastors' School can work 
in co-operation with this proposed institute as it did in 193 3 with the Institute 
of International Relations, and that the institute for rural ministers may be 
worked out on a scale that will justify a large attendance, and that a goodly 
number of instructors and speakers may be secured.

BIBLE BOARD 



During the past year the Bible, in whole or in part, has been translated in 
the following countries: Several tribes of the American Indians, for some tribes 
in Guatemala, for tribes in the Belgian Congo, and in the Phillipines, and under 
way in Peru and the Sudan. 

The Scriptures are now read in 933 dialects and languages and the entire 
Bible in 173 different languages. 

Prices have been reduced so that a splendid bold-faced type Bible can be 
had for 50 cents, and smaller type for 2 5 cents, and the New Testament in 
strong paper cover at 5 cents. 

During the year 1932 the American Bible Society alone distributed 8,067,156 
Bibles, Testaments and Portions. From several foreign countries the demand has 
been greater than ever before. 

This same Society has put into circulation more than 245,000,000 copies 
during its existence. 

During the past year 4,400 volumes of embossed Scriptures have been dis- 
tributed at home and abroad to the blind. 

Your Committee would call attention to Universal Bible Sunday promoted 
annually by the American Bible Society. This year the date falls on December 
10, the second Sunday in December. The theme will be "The Light Shineth in 
Darkness." Attractive material will be mailed to every pastor and will include 
suggestions for churches and Sunday schools caring to include a pageant or 
dramatic exercises. 

Your Committee would further remind you that the American Bible Society 
serves the pastor in providing stereopticon lectures on Bible work; in publishing 
Scriptures in various forms for unusual parish needs, including Bibles in large 
print; in furnishing posters, leaflets, and information for lectures, addresses, and 
sermons; and in publishing Hebrew and Greek Scriptures for study use. 

The American Bible Society looks to the churches of America for financial 
support in its program. During 1932 the income from living donors fell 22.5% 
below that of the preceding year. Like every religious organization the Society 
is feeling the results of the economic situation and should be generously sup- 
ported in these days of financial anxiety. The budget of the Society is carefully 
studied by an Advisory Council composed of officiallv appointed representatives 
of all the supporting denominations meeting annually in New York City with 
the officers and Budget Committee of the Society's Board of Managers. 

Your Committee respectfully presents for adoption the following resolutions: 



96 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

WHEREAS, The American Bible Society, in carrying on its work of in- 
creasing the circulation of the Scriptures, is engaged in a task essential to the 
whole Christian enterprise, be it resolved: 

First: That we heartily endorse the efforts of the American Bible Society 
in its program of encouraging a wider circulation of the Holy Scriptures; 

SECOND: That inasmuch as Sunday, December 10, 193 3, has been designated 
as Universal Bible Sunday, the ministers of this body co-operate in directing the 
attention of their congregations on that day to the important place in the Chris- 
tian faith which the Holy Scriptures occupy; 

Third: That this body, recognizing that our denomination has officially 
recommended the giving of one per cent of its benevolence budget to the Ameri- 
can Bible Society, rejoice in the amount we are able to give to this cause and 
wish it were many times more than it is. 

E. MYERS, Chairman, 
T. J. CARSON, Secretary. 



COMMITTEE ON LAKE JUNALUSKA METHODIST 
ASSEMBLY 

It seems assured now that the receivership of the Assembly will be terminated 
this fall or winter, and the property restored to the Trustees with more than 
three-fourths of all indebtedness legally wiped out and the remainder extended 
on long and easy terms. 

During the past season the cottages were all occupied and the attendance 
was good, considering the times and the competition of the Chicago World's 
Fair. Mr. James Atkins, receiver, discharged his duties admirably and pleased 
everybody by his careful management and courteous treatment of all patrons. 
The program was excellent and the Conferences and Training Schools were well 
attended. 

It may be safely said that when again taken over by the Trustees, the Assembly 
will be on a sounder and more permanent basis than ever before. 

We recommend that E. A. Cole be elected Trustee for a term of two years.

THE JOINT COMMISSION ON METHODIST 
CO-OPERATION 

The Joint Commission met in the editorial office of the Christian Advocate, 
Greensboro, N. C, November 8, 193 3, with members present from the three 
Conferences: North Carolina and Western North Carolina, M. E. Church, South, 



Western North Carolina Conference 97 

and the North Carolina Annual Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church. 
We pass on to you the result of our deliberations: 

1 . We are glad to report a continuance of the spirit of fraternity and co- 
operation between the two denominations represented in this Commission, a 
spirit that is being manifested in many ways. Perhaps the greatest help to a 
development of this fraternal feeling is coming through the Training Schools 
for Christian Workers, and which have in them great possibilities for co-opera- 
tive effort. We suggest that, wherever it is possible, joint schools be arranged 
for, to be taught by accredited teachers from both denominations. 

The General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal and the Methodist 
Protestant Churches, meeting last May, adopted the following recommendation 
growing out of the report of the Commissions on Church Union: "We unite in 
recommending the creation or continuation of Commissions authorized to begin 
at once after May, 1934, definite efforts on the part of the three Commissions 
to make and agree upon plans for the union of the three churches, and others 
that may enter upon the negotiations." 

To that end your Joint Commission on Methodist Co-operation memorializes 
the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, meeting in 
May, 1934, at Jackson, Miss., the working out of a ten-year plan, similar to 
that which led to the reunion of British Methodism, to begin with the celebra- 
tion of the Christmas Conference and ending with the centennial of the organi- 
zation of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in 1944, looking toward the 
reunion of American Methodism at that date. 

We recommend that in so far as possible our churches unite in the celebra- 
tion of the Sesqui-Centennial of American Methodism, the plans for the same to 
be worked out by the three Commissions to be set up by the Annual Conferences 
this fall. We cordially invite the Blue Ridge-Atlantic Conference of the Metho- 
dist Episcopal Church to join with us in this celebration. The Joint Commission 
suggests that the paper presented to our meeting by Dr. P. N. Garber be made 
the basis. 

Following our usual agreement that the terms of two members of the Joint 
Commission, representing each of the denominations, shall expire each year, we 
recommend that the matter of electing their successors be left to the Conferences 
concerned. 

M. T. PLYLER, Chairman, 
C. W. BATES, Secretary.

100 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

CONFERENCE BROTHERHOOD MINUTES 

The Western North Carolina Conference Brotherhood met in twenty-fifth 
annual session in the Chapel, First Methodist Church, Charlotte, N. C, Friday, 
November 17, at 3:00 p, m. At the request of the President, W. L. Sherrill, 
the Vice-President, H. G. Allen, presided, and conducted the opening- devotional 
service. A hymn was sung and S. M. Needham led in prayer. The minutes of 
the last annual meeting- were read and approved. Musical selections were rendered 
by the Harris sisters' quartette. 

In the absence of the Secretary-Treasurer, Rev. C. M. Pickens, his report 
as Treasurer was submitted by C. C. Herbert, Jr., and is as follows: The Brother- 
hood has had a loss of four members this past Conference year, A. G. Loftin, 
M. B. Woosley, W. E. Poovey, and H. G. Hardin. Due the beneficiaries on 
these claims, $4,800.00. Paid on these claims to date, $2,400.00, having paid 
each widow $600.00. Amount of cash on hand, $2,965.32. 

The audit, called for at the last annual meeting, was read and went to 
record. This covered a five year period. 

The following amendment to the constitution was proposed a year ago: 
"That whereas each clerical member of the Brotherhood now pays five dollars 
on the death of a clerical member, that our regulation be so changed that when 
one superannuates, that he be required to pay just two dollars instead." When 
this proposed amendment was read, it ■ was moved that it be adopted. The 
amendment was extensively discussed, a vote was taken, and the amendment lost 
by a large majority. 

It was moved and carried that the Bishop be requested to present the matter 
of the Brotherhood to the Conference on Saturday morning. 

The following officers were elected: W. L. Sherrill, President; H. G. Allen, 
Vice-President; C. M. Pickens, Secretary-Treasurer; C. C. Herbert, Jr., Assistant 
Secretary-Treasurer; H. C. Sprinkle and G. D. Herman, members of the Ex- 
ecutive Committee. 

A Committee was appointed to approach the young men of the Conference 
concerning the Brotherhood and urge them to join. It was moved and carried 
that the officers arrange for the Brotherhood to be presented at the meetings of 
the District Conferences. 

Further musical selections were rendered by the Harris sisters, after which 
the meeting adjourned. 

H. G. ALLEN, Vice-President, 

C. C. HERBERT, JR., Assistant Secretary-Treasurer.

Memoirs 



REV. JOHN FRANKLIN ARMSTRONG 

John Franklin Armstrong, son of Pinkney and Eliza Goodson Armstrong, 
was born in Lincoln County, N. C, February 3, 1877, and died in Rex Hospital, 
in Raleigh, on June 15, 193 3. 

He was born in a Christian home. To this was added the advantage of his 
being brought from his childhood under the influence of the evangelistic spirit 
of the Methodist Church in the great annual camp meetings at Rock Springs 
near his father's home. At this camp ground he was converted when he was ten 
years old. He at once became a member of the church and when fifteen years old 
felt a clear call to the Christian ministry. That call he never doubted. I think 
no one else has ever doubted it. He was licensed to preach at the early age of 
eighteen. From that time to the end of his life here on earth it was the one great 
joy of his heart to preach the gospel of Christ. 

On December 25, 1898, he was happily married to Miss Rebecca Goodson 
who was his devoted wife and helpful co-laborer till her death in North Wilkes- 
boro, April 17, 1929. One son, J. Frank Armstrong, Jr., survives. 

Brother Armstrong, in preparation for his work in the ministry, attended 
Weaver College from which he graduated in 1901. After teaching for a year 
in the public schools of his native county, he was received on trial, in 1902, into 
the Western North Carolina Annual Conference. He was an enthusiastic student 
all the years of his ministry, taking correspondence courses in Vanderbilt and 
Columbia and attending summer courses at Union Theological Seminary and 
Duke University. He collected a well chosen library and never preached without 
careful preparation. 

He served the following charges as pastor: 1903-04, El Bethel; 1905, South 
Fork; 190 6-0 7, McAdenville; 190 8-11, Bessemer City; 1912-14, Henrietta; 
1915, West Asheville; 1916-19, Spray; 1920-24, Forest Hill, Concord; 1925-26, 
Belmont Park, Charlotte; 1927, Centenary, Greensboro; 1928-29, North Wilkes- 
boro; 1930-3 1, Hillside, Asheville; 1932 till June 15, 1933, Rutherfordton. 
He was a faithful and acceptable Methodist pastor for nearly thirty-one years. 

The large number of both laymen and preachers at Rutherfordton, where 
his funeral was conducted, and at Bethel Church, in Lincoln County, where he 
was buried beside his wife, bore testimony not only to his popularity but also 
to how he was loved by those who knew him. He was one of our most widely 
known and best beloved pastors. 

Brother Armstrong was in many ways a great preacher. He had the back- 
ground of a sound and genuine Christian experience. Those who heard him 
were convinced by his sincerity and earnestness. His imagination was sanctified 
and clothed in beauty. He spoke with the authority of the true prophet and 
yet with the tenderness and pathos of a real shepherd. He was careful in the 
selection of his themes for preaching. His sermons were more than entertaining 
and instructive: they were uplifting and convincing. His ministry was evangelical 
and he held many revivals in which hundreds were brought to Christ. 

He loved life and put enthusiastic joy into living and in turn got joy out 
of life. He was one of the most cheerful and one of the happiest men I have 
known in a lifetime. He had his sorrows but before him there was so much of 
wonderful hope born out of Christian faith that he lived not in the yesterdays 
of regret and gloom but in the tomorrows of expected happiness. He loved God's 
wonderful world with all its beauty of mountain and stream, field and forest, 
and every bird and flower. He was much in demand as preacher and friend 



Western North Carolina Conference 161 

where young- people, as well as older people, gathered. His spirit was so deep 
and tender, his manner so sincere, his interest in others so unselfish, and his whole 
life so impressive that all classes of people were drawn to him. He expressed in 
life as he lived it, one of his greatest sermons. 

We loved him sincerely and shall miss him sorely till we see him again in 
the land of everlasting- life. E. W. FOX.

REV. HENRY GRADY HARDIN 

Henry Grady Hardin, son of Dr. E. K. Hardin, a practicing physician of 
Batesburg, South Carolina, was born February 27, 1890. His mother was Mrs. 
Ida Clinkscales Hardin, an ideal wife and mother, who was to her children what 
Hannah was to Samuel in that most beautiful of Old Testament stories. 

After his graduation at Wofford College, Spartanburg, South Carolina, he 
joined the South Carolina Conference in 1911 and was appointed to Clover 
where he served two years as pastor. His other appointments follow: Denmark, 
S. C, two years; McColl, two years; Trinity Church, Charleston, three years. 

In 1920 he was transferred by Bishop U. V. W. Darlington to the Western 
North Carolina Conference and appointed to Tryon Street Church, Charlotte, 
where he remained four years. After three years at Central Church, Monroe, 
and two years at Main Street, Gastonia, Brother Hardin became pastor of West 
Market Street Church, Greensboro, in 1929, and was within a few months of 
completing his quadrennium when, unexpectedly to his family and friends, in the 
early morning of August 24, 193 3, he passed from earth. Without warning to 
any one, his heart gave out and he went to join "the spirits of just men made 
perfect." 

In him was the law of kindness, and gentleness made him a peer among the 
noble of earth. For our purpose just here we adopt a slight paraphrase of a 
verse or two in the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians: He was kind, envied 
no man, vaunted not himself, was never puffed up, did not behave himself 
unseemly, was not easily provoked, thought no evil, but rejoiced in the truth. 

Henry Grady Hardin ever lived blameless before God and man. And it was 
easy for him to act the part of a Christian gentleman because he was one of 
nature's noblemen, always adorning the doctrines that he professed. 

Before him had gone forebears who were the finest flower of a civilization 
rooted in the virtues of a pioneer people, a people that lived according to the 
precepts and doctrines of the Word of God. His mother who, before he was born, 
had prayed that he might become a minister of the gospel, ever followed him 
with her prayers and gave to him and her other children everything that a 
richly endowed and devoted mother could bestow. As a result, this boy with such 
a pious, devoted and industrious mother, got a good start in life and never 
failed to profit thereby. 

It is not surprising, therefore, that Grady Hardin with these advantages in 
his early life, should, in a few years, become the pastor of leading churches in 
the Conferences to which he belonged. Only twenty-two years had he been an 
itinerant Methodist preacher when he suddenly and unexpectedly went to join 
his comrades of the Christian ministry in the heavenly country. But in those few 
years as a young minister he had been appointed to serve some of our largest 
churches. 

As a preacher of the gospel he never failed to measure up to the demands 
of the occasion. It might be a prayer meeting talk to a handful of the faithful, 
a sermon in a little country church, or the exacting demands of preaching to 
big city congregations Sunday after Sunday, yet he never failed to meet the 
requirements of the hour. If called to deliver a great commencement sermon or 
to preach in the Duke University Chapel, as he did last summer, he was the same 
dignified, commanding pulpiteer who honored his Lord and Master by preaching 



162 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

the gospel in simplicity and purity. He was not ritualistic and had no inclination 
to magnify the simple ritual of his own church, but the ritual he did use as 
pastor was employed with a perfection that never failed to elicit the praise of 
those who love to see the services of the church and the sacraments conducted 
with skill and becoming reverence. 

On the Sunday before his death Dr. Hardin delivered a sermon of great 
power and one that made a tremendous impression upon his congregation. The 
people who heard it discussed it up to the time of his death, and there arose a 
great demand that it be published, which was done. 

On December 10, 1913, Mr. Hardin married Miss Olive Walker of York, 
South Carolina, who, with the three children, survive him. The children are 
H. Grady, Jr., Nan Walker, and James Walker. His brothers and sisters, named 
in order of their births, are: Mrs. M. L. Smith (deceased), L. L. Hardin, 
Clover, S. C, Rev. E. K. Hardin (deceased), J. C. Hardin, Rock Hill, S. C. 

The funeral services were held Friday, August 25, in the West Market Street 
Church where a sorrowing throng of parishoners and friends assembled for those 
last solemn rites which were conducted by Bishop Edwin D. Mouzon, bishop in 
charge, Revs. W. A. Newell, presiding elder of the Greensboro District, L. D. 
Thompson, presiding elder of the Winston-Salem District, Fletcher Nelson, assist- 
ant pastor of West Market Street Church, and G. T. Bond, pastor of College 
Place Church, Greensboro. 

Interment was at Clover, South Carolina, in the afternoon of the same day 
that the funeral was held in Greensboro. In the village cemetery, amid the 
scenes of his first pastorate and where some of his kindred dwell, tender hands 
laid his body to rest beneath the fair skies of his native South Carolina. 

The departure of this Christian minister of genial presence, attractive per- 
sonality, gifts and graces not a few, has brought sorrow to many hearts. We 
have said the long farewell, but we have not forgotten him, neither shall we 
fail to rejoice in the splendid service that he rendered for God and his fellow- 
man. 

Anyone who has tasted the bitter cup of grief and who, amid the dark 
shadows of a great bereavement, has staggered into the years that lie ahead, 
cannot fail to be a sympathetic friend of the dear woman who walked by his 
side the twenty years of their married life, and of the son, now at Duke Univer- 
sity, preparing to take up his father's work, and of the dear daughter, just 
budding into young womanhood, and of the baby boy who will hardly remem- 
ber his good father's face. God bless every one of them. A. W. PLYLER. 

REV. ALBERT GRAY LOFTIN 

Albert Grav Loftin was born at Jackson Hill, N. C, on the 3rd day of 
October, 1872. He passed to his reward at Glen Alpine, N. C, on the 22nd 
day of June, 193 3, and two days later his body was laid to rest at Newsome, 
N. C. 

He was the son of J. Columbus Loftin and Frances Smith Loftin. He was 
married on the 25th day of November, 1903, to Miss Jennie Smith, his child- 
hood sweetheart. To this union was born three children: Miss Bonte, now a 
teacher in the public schools of Greensboro; Heber, a lovely boy who, at the 
age of seven years, preceded his father to the glory world; and Frances Gray, 
who is a student at Greensboro College. 

Brother Loftin's early life was spent upon the farm among the Uwharrie 
hills. He knew the rigorous toil and countless privations that must be endured 
by those who till the soil. In early youth he joined the Methodist Church and 
in a Christian home he grew to sturdy manhood. He heard and heeded the call 
to preach the glorious gospel of God and set out upon that long life of loyalty 
to the hijrh ideals embraced in our holy religion. He never faltered. 



Western North Carolina Conference 163 

In 1901 he joined the Western North Carolina Conference at Gastonia. The 
sainted Bishop Hargrove presided. He was appointed to the Woodside Charge in 
the Salisbury District. It must have been a difficult field, for that is the only 
year in which it appears in our annual minutes as an appointment. The next year 
he was sent to Hiawassee Circuit. In 1903 he was appointed to Glenville and 
remained for two years. In 1905 he was sent to Hayesville and remained for 
three years. In 1908 he was appointed to the Farmington Circuit and here 
followed three more years of fine service. From there he went to the Lewisville 
Circuit for three more years. In 19 1+ he was appointed to the Catawba Circuit, 
where he spent four happy, fruitful years. After a year at Stony Point he was 
sent to Pleasant Garden for the following four years. Then a year at Randleman 
followed by four years on the Concord Circuit. In 192 8 he went to Lowell for 
a year, then to Davie Circuit for two years. In 1931 he was stationed at Glen 
Alpine. It was here that he fell to sleep. Loving hands bore his body back to 
the red hills of lower Davidson, where it now rests in the little graveyard at 
Newsome. 

To the outer world this simple record would seem a part of the short and 
simple annals of God's humblest servants. But to us who know the grandeur of 
service rendered it is as the shout of one of God's victorious sons. It has pleased 
God that, by the foolishness of preaching, the world shall be saved. And what 
a preacher Albert Gray Loftin was. I knew him well. We were ardent friends 
from the day that I joined the Conference in 1903. I was twice his presiding 
elder. For four years he was pastor of my home folk down in Cabarrus County. 
He began his ministry under serious handicaps and many limitations. The learn- 
ing for which he yearned was denied his youth. By constant application and 
persistent study he overcame all hindrances and grew in majesty with each passing 
year. His unbounded love for the church inspired the most ardent devotion to 
her every cause and interest. He sprang from the common people and the com- 
mon people heard him gladly. Among admiring friends he led the flock with 
the humility of the good shepherd. The people loved and trusted him, believed 
implicitly in the sincerity of his life, and waited upon his ministry with joy. 
Courage came to those who wavered, and hope to the hopeless. And ever in 
his ministry men could hear the Christ speaking words of healing and for- 
giveness. Life took on richer values and heavenly towers shone in the white 
light of an abiding faith. Immortality was a present possession and held most 
dear. His every hour was filled with a great ministry. "He came and went like 
a pleasant thought." 

His faithful wife was the one deep love of his life. His two lovely daughters 
were a source of constant joy. He often spoke of the little boy who had gone 
on before and thought of him as one who lives and waits in the land of the 
Great Reality. His home was the gathering place for young and old and his 
fireside a shrine. 

So ends a good life. It is the only kind of life that is worthy of being called 
"the good life." There is no regret and no bitterness in the manner of his going. 
In the little church at Glen Alpine he stood with the bread and wine, symbols 
of his Saviour's sacrifice, in his hands and there his own frail body, broken by 
years of ceaseless service, was added to the mighty sacrifice of humanity's best, 
offered upon the altar of the King of perfect love. A few days later his soul 
passed on into the sunrise of endless day and symbol became the presence of 
the Holy One. That for which he had longed became an eternal possession. 

Back to the hills again, back to the beginning, back home, they carried his 
ashes; and on a hill overlooking the wide sweep of the Yadkin River we laid his 
body down and covered it over with the kindly loam from which it came, and 
left it to mingle with the dust of his fathers, whose broken tabernacles lie beneath 
the whispering pines. W. A. NEWELL.

REV. WALTER LEE NICHOLSON 

Walter Lee Nicholson was born at Nicholson's Mill, Iredell County, N. C, 
June 5, 1869, and died at his home in Charlotte, N. C, August 29, 1933. 
He was the son of James Lee and Mattie Calvert Nicholson. While yet a small 
boy both his parents died, leaving him to make his own way and to fight life's 
battles against the handicap of a seriously defective eyesight, which was his lot 
from birth. He was never able to read at length, and was dependent in large 
measure upon having others read to him. Thus, in later years, it was only 
through having his wife read the Conference course of study to him that he 
was able to pass successfully the examination in this course. But, a good mind 
and an exceptional, retentive memory enabled him to accomplish what other- 
wise would have been impossible. 

His early boyhood was spent in the home of his two grandfathers, both of 
whom were engaged in the cotton mill business. But whatever fortunes the 
family may have had, were entirely lost, and Walter Lee Nicholson was left as 
an orphan without any material resources with which to prepare himself for 
life. Despite all handicaps, however, he faced the world with courage and with 
the determination to make the most of every opportunity. 

At first it was thought that, on account of his defective vision, he would 
not be able to take the regular course in the schools. But here he overcame his 
difficulties in an astonishing way. After attending the public schools of his county, 
he studied in Hill's Academy at Statesville. At eighteen he began teaching, and 
before he was twenty-one years of age he was elected superintendent of public 
instruction in Iredell County, his twenty-first birthday intervening before he 
took office. He was at one time principal of Mooresville Academy, and later of 
Wilkesboro Academy, and, during the first year in the Conference, he was a 
teacher at Valle Crucis. 

In his early boyhood he united with the Methodist Church. For a time he 
thought of taking up the profession of the law, but later decided to give his life 
to the ministry. 

In 1896 he joined the Western North Carolina Conference, and served the 
following charges: Boone, Mount Holly, Bryson City, Derita Circuit, Belmont 
Park, Brevard Street, and China Grove. He was conscientious and effective in 
his work as a preacher and pastor. But, on account of failing eyesight, he 
realized that he could not go on further in the active pastorate, and, at the 
Conference of 1910, asked for the supernumerary relation and retired from the 
active ministry. A few weeks before his death he said to the writer, "Nothing 
in my whole life pained me so deeply as when I found it necessary to give up 
my work in the Conference." 

Walter Lee Nicholson was not a man to accept defeat. Again he faced life 
with a determination to make his way, this time in the business world. He soon 
became actively identified with the business life of Charlotte, in real estate and 
in the textile industry. 

After his retirement from the Conference Brother Nicholson was for a while 
a member of Tryon Street Quarterly Conference but when Hawthorne Lane 
Church was organized, he associated himself with it and was treasurer of the 
building fund of thejjew church until it was raised. He was also a member of 
the Board of Stewards of this church, and chairman of the Board of Trustees 
until his death. 

In 1896 he was married to Miss Effie Jean Squires. There were born to 
them two children, Effie Jean, who died in infancy, and Walter Lee Nicholson, 
Jr. Mrs. Nicholson died in May, 1914. In November, 1915, he married Mrs. 
Lula Squires Clegg. 

He is survived by his widow, his son, W. L. Nicholson, Jr., and by a brother, 



Western North Carolina Conference 165 

W. T. Nicholson, of Statesville 5 also by his step-children, Misses Lula Faye 
and Catherine Clegg, and Charles S. Clegg. 

The funeral services were held in Hawthorne Lane Methodist Church, August 
30, J. B. Craven, John W. Moore, W. W. Peele, and John W. Shackford par- 
ticipating. Interment was in Elmwood cemetery. 

Brother Nicholson was quiet, gentle, unassuming and brave. Handicapped 
and denied the ends he sought in early life, he went forward without com- 
plaining, seeking to make the most of life. He loved his home and his church 
and was the sympathetic friend and wise advisor of many. He sought to be 
faithful in that which was committed to him. 

A layman, whose pastor he has been for years, and who had known him 
intimately through all the after years until his death, said of him : "He was a 
good preacher, a fine Christian gentleman and one of the best pastors I have 
known. He interested himself in every member of his congregation, the highest 
and the lowest, and was especially sympathetic with those in trouble. The amount 
of work he did was almost unbelievable, for one handicapped as he was. He 
was one of the best men I ever knew." 

One of his brother ministers who had known him through many years gives 
this as his impression of him : "He was a man of much more than the average 
ability. Few men, after spending their earlier years in the ministry, could have 
gone into business and accomplished what he did. It also required a great deal 
of courage to do it. Then he was very humble and unassuming. To know the 
real merit of the man one must have had a very intimate acquaintance with him. 
Another marked characteristic was his loyalty to his friends. There was no gush 
about him, but he was always true. In his charities he did not let his left hand 
know what his right hand did, but he was always ready to respond to the call 
of need. I never heard him make the least criticism of the church and was loyal 
to it in a very marked degree. He was not a noisy Christian but he was a good 
one." 

Another friend who had known him for years wrote: "His life was an 
inspiration. When halted in his life work by his eyesight, he did not, as most 
other men would have done, sit down in idleness and despondency, but made a 
notable success in another field. With millions of others, he saw much of the 
material achievement waste away before his eyes. But the moral and spiritual 
values remain. He was faithful in the use of the talents God gave him, and I 
feel sure that he has heard with joy the Master's words: 'Well done, good and 
faithful servant; enter into the joy of thy Lord'." J. W. SHACKFORD.

REV. WILLIAM EDGAR POOVEY 

William Edgar Poovey, son of Julius A. and Martha (Houck) Poovey, was 
born in Catawba County, North Carolina, November 17, 1878. 

After attending the local primary schools he received high school training 
at Lenoir-Rhyne College, then two years at Rutherford and two years at Emory 
and Henry College, where he received the A.B. degree in June, 1906, and won 
the orator's medal. 

He was a good student and made a creditable record in all his college work. 
He was popular with his teachers and the student body, entered heartily into all 
the college activities; was president of the Young Men's Christian Association 
and of his literary society at both Rutherford and Emory and Henry. He not 
only led in his class work but excelled in all the college games as well. 

When a youth, he was converted and joined the Methodist church. He grew 
in the Christian graces and as a Christian worker. Being prepared in mind and 
heart for his life work, he responded to the call to preach ; was licensed, and 
after several years' experience as a local preacher, was admitted on trial into 
the Western North Carolina Conference at Mount Airy, in November, 1906, and 



166 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

served the following charges: 1907, Lenoir Circuit; 1908-09, professor in 
Rutherford College; 1910-11, Weaverville Station; 1912-14, North Asheville; 
1915, Ozark-Dallas; 1916-19, Brevard; 1920, North Wilkesboro District; 1921- 
22, Central, Shelby; 1923-26, First Church, Marion; 1927-29, First Church, 
Lenoir; 1930-3 3, Mount Airy District. 

He was ordained deacon by Bishop Morrison at Salisbury, in 1907, and 
elder by Bishop Hendrix at Winston-Salem, in 1910. 

Last July he was stricken with a fearful malady and, after a surgical opera- 
tion which confirmed the fears of his physicians that his condition was hopeless, 
he lingered for a few brief weeks and died in peace at the Mounty Airy Hospital 
just at sunset on Sunday, July 2 3rd. This brief statement covers the splendid 
record of a noble life. 

Nature did much for him but grace did more. He was a magnificent physical 
specimen which promised many more years of useful service and his mental 
equipment was proportioned to the physical. He possessed extraordinary mentality, 
his mind was well trained and, after receiving his college degree, he continued 
to be studious and developed into a broadiy cultured man, a writer of vigorous 
English, a poet of no mean pretensions, an interesting platform speaker and 
a preacher ,of rare gifts, whose messages were full of instruction for believers 
as well as for sinners, and appeals to the unconverted were so charged with 
spiritual fervor that he became an effective evangelistic speaker. He was a strong 
doctrinal preacher, a born leader of men, who organized his forces for conflict 
and throughout his ministerial life his work was constructive and his fitness for 
leadership was most plainly manifest during the last four years which he spent 
on the Mount Airy District. 

In every charge he was recognized for his strong common sense, his discrimin- 
ating judgment, his goodness of heart, his childlike faith and wise administration. 

He was a true friend to his preachers, all of whom loved him and confided 
in him. His judgment was respected by the laity who confidently followed him. 
Those who knew him best regarded him most highly and wherever he went 
all the children loved him. 

As a teacher he knew how to impart knowledge and inspire pupils in the 
college classes and later, the young preachers, in the summer schools in which 
he instructed them for many years. 

He was appreciated not only by his own people, but his influence overflowed 
into other communions where he had hosts of friends and admirers. He was a 
bright Mason, Master of the Mount Airy Lodge and Grand Chaplain of the 
Grand Lodge of North Carolina. 

He never shirked a duty but gave himself unsparingly to his holy task and 
was snatched away in the very flower of his usefulness. 

In the last days he realized his serious condition and planned the work of 
the district for any emergency, leaving the record so complete that whoever 
should follow him, could take up the task where he laid it down. 

Thus unafraid and full of faith he committed himself and his family to the 
Lord whom he had so long trusted and followed, and when the end came there 
was great peace. 

The funeral service was conducted by Bishop Mouzon, assisted by other 
ministers, in Central Church, Mount Airy, on July 25th, in the presence of a 
large congregations among whom were many of his brethren of the ministry. 
At the conclusion of this service the body was taken to Hickory, where it was 
buried in the City cemetery with Masonic honors. 

He was happily married August 8, 1906, to Miss Mabel Hill Stroup, who 
was, through all his ministry, a faithful helpmeet. She, with the two children, 
still abide.

MARCUS BOYLES WOOSLEY 

Monday morning, July 3, 1933, at 5:40 o'clock, the golden key that opens 
the palace of eternity turned and the soul of Marcus Boyles Woosley gently 
passed to that "undiscovered country from whose shores no traveler has ever 
returned." He was born at Trinity, Randolph County, September 26, 1894, the 
son of the late Rev. J. E. and Mrs. Pauline Woosley. 

On Easter day, April, 1918, he was happily married to Miss Lucille Warlick, 
daughter of the late D. H. and Mrs. Warlick, of Granite Falls, N. C. This 
union was blessed with three children: two daughters, Rebecca and Margaret, 
and one son, Harry. 

Brother Woosley professed faith in Christ at the age of six at Muir's Chapel, 
Guilford County. At the close of the meeting, when his father gave the invita- 
tion for those who wished to join, little Marcus went forward and was received 
into church by his father. Step by step he marched on from day school to grammar 
and to high school until he was ready to enter college, graduating in June with 
the class of 1917 at Trinity College, now Duke University. In the fall of 1917, 
at Asheville, he was admitted on trial into the Western North Carolina Con- 
ference. He has faithfully served the following appointments: Granite Falls, 
Davidson, Coburn Memorial, Boone, Leaksville, and Newton. 

Brother Woosley was every inch a man — an honest man; a sincere man; 
and loved his Lord and his fellowmen. He was dependable, a fine organizer who 
led his forces to victory. He was a builder and always made beautiful the 
parsonage and church grounds. He loved the great out-doors, the blooming 
flowers, the running streams and towering mountains. He was devoted to the 
young people and shared with them his joys. He was affectionate, gentle and 
unselfish. Because of his beautiful traits of character, he won the confidence and 
friendship of the people he served. He was an optimist. He looked on the bright 
side of every experience. He was an able preacher, a student who was modern 
in his thinking, and a builder of congregations and Christian character. He was 
a devoted pastor. He visited his people, gave comfort to the broken-hearted, 
cheered the discouraged and distressed. He was a soldier who died at his post. 
He entered the vineyard and labored until the sun went down. We are only 
remembered bv what we have done. The only nobility that lasts is the nobility 
of usefulness. With his gentle hands and smiles of kindness he drew little children 
to him and started their tiny feet on the road that leads to the better country. 

A short time before he died he said to his wife: "Some great experiences have 
come to me through my father's and mother's lives which have lived with me 
through the changing years. At times I have as beautiful a survey of life as 
could be given by a father and mother. I can hear now the sleet and rain that 
fell on the houses in which I have lived. My father loved people and I have 
always loved people. My greatest ambition is to serve. I have tried to give in my 
brief service in the Western North Carolina Conference that high dignity and 
respect which Dad gave the world. Just recently I attended school at Duke 
University and there came to me great mountains of spiritual power. It is blessed 
to come into full contact with life at the University. As I felt, while there, these 
motives and purposes in my life, I rejoiced in them and resolved that in every 
local charge in which I serve I would try to give them to my people." 

Later on in the week as the silver cord was being loosened and the golden 
bells were ringing, Brother Woosley stopped on the brink of the river and sang 
softly and sweetly the hymn: "What a Friend We Have in Jesus." Then he 



168 Minutes of the Forty-fourth Session 

added, "I am ready to go. I am not afraid. I settled the question long ago. 
Lucille, be brave. 'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want'." Then he 
offered a beautiful prayer, his companion praying with him. 

We find it hard to realize that the shadows have fallen across his pathway, 
that the smile that made his friends happy has faded, and the voice that cheered 
has been stilled, but it is not the length of years we live but what we put into 
those years that counts. No man starts to live until he begins to live right. So 
the earthly life of one who lived for a noble purpose for 3 8 years has ended, 
but he has left to those whom he loved the high legacy of a devoted Christian 
life. Heaven seems nearer to us all because he is there. It was darkest night, 
Sunday, July 2nd, when skilled physicians and surgeons and sympathetic nurses 
and true and loving friends stood by his bedside at the Davis Hospital, but it 
was soon apparent that he had received a message from the eternal world, and 
at 5 :40 o'clock Monday morning his soul departed to be with father and Saviour 
in a land untouched by sin. 

In his going I feel that I have lost one of my dearest and best friends. The 
church and Conference have lost a guiding star; the wife and children a loving 
husband and father; the aged mother a devoted son; the brothers and sisters 
a true brother. But we shall see him in the morning in a land where partings are 
unknown. (I want to go to heaven because such men as Mark Woosley are there). 

He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Lucille Woosley, two daughters, Rebecca 
and Margaret, and little son, Harry. By' his aged mother, Mrs. J. E. Woosley, 
three sisters, Mrs. W. B. Hall, High Point, N. C. ; Mrs. C. M. Weber, Danville, 
Va. ; Mrs. A. M. Wagoner, Walkertown, N. C, and two brothers, O. V. Woosley, 
superintendent of the Children's Home, Winston-Salem, N. C, and Dr. J- B. 
Woosley, teacher of economics at the University of North Carolina, and a host 
of devoted friends who mourn the passing of this good man. 

May we this day thank God for having given to the world and the church 
Marcus B. Woosley. May we praise the Lord that his faith did not waver, did 
not fail in the dving hour. The sunset was clear. There were no clouds to dim 
the glory of his crossing. He lived well and died well. 

"Mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is 
peace." J. S. HIATT. 



A HEROINE OF THE PARSONAGE WHO DIED THIS YEAR 



MRS. BESSIE T. ERWIN 

Mrs. Bessie T. Ervvin, widow of the late Rev. Ira Erwin, member of the 
Western North Carolina Conference, passed to her reward September 4, 193 3, 
from the home of her daughter, Mrs. F. E. Branson, in Canton, N. C. 

She was the daughter of H. Clay and Carrie Butner Thomas, of Thomasville, 
N. C, and was born December 26, 1871. She graduated from Salem College 
in 1891. She was married to Brother Erwin April 6, 1897, and to the time of 
his death she brought to the various charges they served a life of beautiful 
culture and fine devotion. Thousands of our people can testify to her unswerving 
loyalty and sacrificial service in her labors of loving consecration. Through her 
widowhood she continued to manifest the same sweet spirit and abounding interest 
that marked her work as the wife of an itinerant preacher. 

During her protracted illness she was most gracious in her suffering and her 
faith was unbounded. Over and over she testified to the hope that sustained her 
and the glorv of the setting sun cast a halo about her translation.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON UNIFIED PROGRAM 

OF WORK 

(Ordered to be Published in the Minutes) 

In response to a call from Bishop Kern, a group of ministers and laymen of 
the Western North Carolina Conference met in Statesville on Friday, September 
2 8, to confer together concerning a unified program of the work of our Con- 
ference for the coming quadrennium. 

As a result of this meeting, we submit the following general principles for 
your consideration: 

SECTION 1— FINANCES 

The "New Financial Plan" offered the church bv the last General Confer- 
ence forces a careful study of all our previous financial methods, and doubtless 
will necessitate many revisions. The plan offers possibilities of great improve- 
ment in church giving, but may be a dismal failure. It offers a new day of 
intelligent liberality, free-will giving, and spiritual development. It may easily 
lead to selfishness, forgetfulness of others, and narrowing outlook and vision. 

We advise: 

1. The acceptance of the quota as submitted by the General Conference 
Budget Commission. 

2. In the matter of pastors' salaries we set as a goal this quadrennium the 
payment of every pastor's salary in full and a plan of help, to be Conference- 
wide, by which preachers with salaries above $1,200.00 shall contribute to a 
fund to be used to bring all salaries up to a minimum of $1,200.00 for married 
men and $900.00 for single men. 

3. That one-half of our benevolences be paid by Easter and a minimum of 
80% of total Conference assessments be paid during the year; to reach 100% 
during the quadrennium. 

In order that this may be accomplished, promptness in starting, system in 
working, and persistence of effort will be needed. 
We therefore suggest: 

1. That the District Stewards meet within two weeks after the closing of 
this Conference to be followed as rapidly as possible by the Quarterly Confer- 
ences. 

2. That a cultivation period, closing with Easter, be carried on in all 
churches, the emphasis being laid on stewardship for sake of others. 

3. That the congregation-budget be balanced each quarter. 

4. That District meetings be held quarterly. 

5. That the aim of all our financial work be not only the raising of money 
but development of character through intelligent, unselfish giving. To this end 
we urge formation of study clubs and the active use of every church organiza- 
tion to spread the knowledge of what the church is doing and the world's need 
of our help. 



48 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

SECTION 2— CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

The increasing importance of Christian education in the local church has 
laid heavy responsibilities on our General and Conference Boards of Christian 
Education. This Conference has a great record in this field. We must take no 
backward step. We should set our goals high and fight hard to reach them. 

We suggest the following: 

1. An increase of 10% in church school attendance for 1934-35 and a 
5% increase for each succeeding year of the quadrennium. 

2. Insistence on the part of Presiding Elders and pastors that a local Board 
shall be organized in each congregation and that a training course be offered 
in reach of each school. 

3. That our program be enlarged by occupying areas not now occupied. 
The Board of Christian Education is instructed to co-operate with the Presiding 
Elders and Board of Missions in such work. 

4. That, in co-operation with the Woman's Societies, the Board interest 
itself in plans looking to helpful co-operation with the colored race. 

5. That we call on each local Board to see to it that the fourth Sunday 
be set aside not simply for raising money but for the dissemination of facts about 
our home and foreign missionary enterprises. 

6. That Church School Day, College Day, and Childhood and Youth Week 
be made occasions when the church and youth be made to know each other 
better and to find a common ground on which to meet; a common language 
in which to discuss matters of spirit. 

7. That the Conference Board be instructed to work out a definite policy 
for our colleges, looking especially to the support of Brevard College. 

SECTION 3— MISSIONS 

In view of the importance of the cause of missions we urge that every 
occasion and every agency be used to forward this cause. In the church school 
and the Woman's Missionary Society we have agencies that can be used most 
effectively. Our first effort must be toward recreating missionary interest and 
missionary enthusiasm. 

1. To this end we urge every pastor to give himself with unstinted devo- 
tion to presenting the new financial plan of the church; that each Presiding Elder 
arrange for missionary institutes and group meetings in his District in order 
that the subject may be kept constantly before our people. 

2. It is the sense of the Conference that one-half of our present mission 
charges should become self-supporting within this quadrennium. We believe this 
can be hastened by consolidating and re-locating our churches at strategic centers. 
To this end we instruct our Board of Missions and Presiding Elders. 

3. We recommend that every pastor assist to his utmost in the organization 
of a Woman's Missionary Society in each church. 

4. Many congregations will be interested in carrying missionary specials. 
Where this can be done it should be done. 

5. The Golden Cross should be featured on at least one Sunday in each year, 
and information with reference to our hospital at Elkin furnished our people. 

6. We recommend that a Commission be appointed by the Bishop to study 
the whole question of Conference missions. 



Western North Carolina Conference 49 

SECTION 4— SPIRITUAL LIFE OBJECTIVES 

The Methodist Church has not only enough, but good enough, machinery 
to carry on its work. What it now needs is power to make its machinery do its 
work. Nor is it financial or intellectual, but spiritual power that it needs. We 
need first to look at ourselves as ministers and laymen. 

Our personal life must come first. Methodism puts primary emphasis on 
experience. We must re-affirm this constantly. "Is thy heart right?" is a good 
Methodist phrase and a pertinent question always. Every revival must start in 
the church and all church work must carry on in the light of a spiritual glow 
from the membership. 

To this end we suggest : 

1. That emphasis be placed on the personal life of ministers and officials 
especially, and that we seek to build up spiritual habits of prayer and Bible 
reading to the end that we may have a foundation of spiritual power in every 
church available for every good work. 

2. That in selection of stewards, church school officers, and teachers, the 
character test should be placed first, so that the old phrase, "men of solid piety," 
will come to mean something once more in Methodism. 

3. That we turn once more to place an emphasis on religion in the home, 
presenting constantly to parents their responsibility as well as their opportunity. 

4. That services of several days duration be held at least once a year, 
preferably during the pre-Easter campaign, definitely for church membership, 
seeking to quicken spiritual sensibilities and deepen human lives. 

5. That our preachers preach more frequently on the great fundamental 
doctrines of the Bible — a storehouse of inspiration and instruction too often 
neglected. We do not need to run to fads, politics, or philosophy for subject 
matter. The Bible is our granary from which we may get all that is necessary for 
spiritual life and growth. 

SECTION 5— EVANGELISM 

The purpose of all evangelistic effort is twofold: 

1. Deepening the spiritual life of our membership. 

2. Bringing in those who have been unreached. 

Both ends are very much to be sought: the first, because so many people 
are just nominal members; the second, because people ought to be coming into 
the church, but they are not in very great numbers as evidenced by the figures — 
only 3% increase by profession of faith having been registered in our Confer- 
ence last year. 

Without discussion, we suggest that the church should use every available 
method to attain these ends, not necessarily following only one when we have so 
many at hand: 

1. Revivals — or mass evangelism. 

2. Personal evangelism. 

3. Visitation evangelism. 

4. Christian nurture. 

The mechanics are less essential than the realization of the importance of 
the task, but we submit as follows: 

1. Every church ought to have an annual evangelistic campaign — preferably 
just before Easter. This should be carefully planned, preceded by survey, con- 
scientiously prepared for, and enthusiastically carried out. 



50 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

2. Classes should be formed in all churches for training children in the 
meaning of church membership as related to Christian living. These classes should 
be under the direction of the pastor or some other trained and devout worker. 
Constant recognition should be given the fact that the home is central in reli- 
gious life; wherever possible, effort should be made to secure decisions there 
and the church school should continue the work begun there. 

3. Every agency in the church should stress evangelism. The church school 
should be definitely organized for this purpose; the Woman's Missionary Society 
and the Board of Stewards, through the committee on Evangelism, should be 
made to feel that this is their chief work. 

4. In many churches a carefully selected group of men and women should 
be called in by the pastor and trained for and encouraged to do this work. 
The prime requisite for such a group is that they be those who have a definite 
religious experience. 

5. We recognize that no evangelism can be successful in a coldly unspiritual 
church or can be led by a ministry that is not conscious of the Holy Spirit. We 
pray that our ministers tarry first at their own altars until they know God for 
themselves and until they can say with deep truth, "Give me souls or I die."

REPORT OF THE RETIRING BOARD OF CHRISTIAN 

EDUCATION 

During the past year your Board of Christian Education has carried on the 
regular activities of our program and has added a number of special activities. 
We call the attention of the Conference to some results in both the regular and 
the special activities. 

During the year, in the training program, 3,813 units of credit were issued. 
These credits were earned in 12 Standard schools and classes, 82 Cokesbury 
classes, a number of Christian Culture institutes and the Pastors' School. A large 
number of vacation schools were held throughout the Conference; the Confer- 
ence staff conducted many informal conferences, institutes and retreats in local 
churches; special days and occasions, such as Sunday School Day, Missionary 
Day, Young People's Day, Childhood and Youth Week, were observed; the 
Conference Assemblies at Lake Junaluska were greatly enlarged. 

The work of Christian education throughout the church, generally, under 
the direction of the General Board, reflects splendid achievements in the major 
objectives of the quadrennium. 

UNUSUAL ACTIVITIES 

The past year has been characterized by several unusual undertakings on the 
part of vour Board. We have co-operated in the celebration of the Sesqui-cen- 
tennial of American Methodism bv offering courses in Standard Training Schools, 
by stressing the elective course for adult classes during one quarter, by featuring 
a course in Methodist beliefs in Cokesbury Training Schools, by pageants at the 
Conference Assemblies and by using the program, "Challenges from the Past," 
in connection with Sunday School Day. 



Western North Carolina Conference 51 

Another unusual feature of this year's work was the introduction of a 
number of experiments in the training program. Among these was the Observation- 
Vacation School conducted for two weeks in Charlotte in June, at which workers 
from nineteen churches observed the Vacation School in session under the direction 
of experienced and capable leaders. Another experiment was the Children's 
Workers' Conference held at Lake Junaluska during the days of August 17-19. 
A third experiment was the Standard Training School for Children's Workers at 
High Point. A fourth experiment was the series of informal "round-table", 
sessions at Liberty, in the Greensboro District, early in September, based upon 
the study of the Meaning of the Christian Religion. 

A special survey of the educational institutions of the Conference has been 
made during the quadrennium. 

Brevard College, the youngest institution of our Conference, began its career 
in September of this year with an enrollment of 391 students and a faculty of 22. 

Last year the Annual Conference asked us to give special attention to the 
following matters: (l) the organization of the Local Church Board of Christian 
Education in every congregation; (2) the evangelistic emphasis throughout our 
program; (3) the enlargement of conferences and assemblies at Lake Junaluska; 
(4) a training program for pastors and district workers. Your staff workers 
have endeavored to carry out the wishes of the Conference in all these particulars. 

DISTRICT STAFFS 

The district workers have done better work than heretofore and a number of 
fine results have been realized. For example: we can report that one district has 
had a training program that has touched every charge in the district; another 
has a Local Board of Christian Education in every church; other districts are 
advancing rapidly with the new program for adults, have made gains in young 
people's work, or are developing the extension program. 

The year's work has been carried forward under the handicap of limited 
finances and a reduced staff.

R. DWIGHT WARE, Secretary.

5. That we call on each Local Board to see to it that the fourth Sunday 
be set aside not simply for raising- money but for the dissemination of facts about 
our home and foreign missionary enterprises. 

6. That Church School Day, College Day, and Childhood and Youth Week

C. C. HERBERT, JR., Secretary. 



BOARD OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION— REPORT NO. 2 

In addition to report No. 1 from our Board, we suggest the following touch- 
ing the local churches: 

1. We regard paragraph 64 of the Discipline, which deals with ministerial 
training, as a forward step, and pledge to the Joint Committee on Ministerial 
Training our co-operation in carrying out the intent of the paragraph. 

2. The General Board of Christian Education has issued a 24 page booklet 
giving specific instruction about the new legislation touching the missionary edu- 
cation of children. We urge every pastor and superintendent to procure this 
booklet and familiarize himself with the new plans so that they may be carried 
out in all our churches. 

3. We call special attention to the fact that, under the present legislation, 
as specifically stated in paragraph 461 of the Discipline, the pastor is now the 
director of religious education in the local church. 

4. We recommend that every adult class secure a charter that it may enjoy 
all the benefits of special direction from the Boards of the church. We also recom- 
mend to these adult classes the wide use of the elective courses published in the 
Adult Student . 

5. We recommend the election of the following Board staff for the year 
1934-35: 

With Salary: 

Executive Extension Secretary Carl H. King 

Director of Children's Division Miss Corinne Little 

Office Secretary Miss Agnes Peacock 

Without Salary: 

Director of Young People's Division Rev. Fletcher Nelson 

Director of Adult Division Rev. Charles P. Bowles 

SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES 

The Board has given due consideration to reports from the General Secretary 
of the General Board of Christian Education, Dr. W. M. Alexander, Secretary 
of the Department of Schools and Colleges ; from Duke University, Greensboro 
College, and Brevard College; from the Board of Managers of the North Caro- 
lina Pastors' School; and to the resolution concerning the E. M. Cole Trust 
Fund, referred to the Board by the Conference. 



Western North Carolina Conference 53 

The General Secretary states that the principle of fewer and stronger institu- 
tions has been set forth by the Board, and that this policy met with the approval 
of the General Conference. He says further that careful surveys of our schools 
and colleges are being made, and that a general survey will be completed eventu- 
ally covering all of our church institutions. In harmony with the recommendation 
of the General Conference a system of schools, colleges, and universities will be 
proposed for the entire church. He states also that special emphasis is to be laid 
on the spiritual life of students on our own church campuses, and specific pro- 
vision is being made for the strengthening of our Wesley Foundation work as 
it relates to state and church-related institutions. 

The report from Duke University reveals the fact that this institution now 
has an enrollment of nearly 3,3 00 students, and that its financial condition is 
better than at any previous time. Of the students enrolled, approximately one-half 
are boys in the undergraduate school known as Trinity College. The remanider 
of the student body is equally divided between the Woman's College, on the one 
hand, and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the professional schools 
on the other. The School of Religion has enrolled this year about 120, thirteen 
of whom are serving pastorates in this Conference. 

The report from Greensboro College shows an increase of forty per cent 
in the number of degree students over the year 1931-32. By stringent economy 
and large reduction in salaries the college has been able to show a favorable 
financial balance. The institution has suffered a deeply-felt loss through the death 
of Dr. Dred Peacock, a former President of the college, a member of the Board 
of Trustees, the Chairman of the Executive Committee, and the Chairman of 
the Trustees of the Endowment Fund. In view of the coming centennial celebra- 
tion in 193 8 certain objectives are being considered. Among them are: a produc- 
tive endowment fund of at least $500,000 with all indebtedness paid, adequate 
equipment for the Physical Education Department including a gymnasium, a 
building for Home Economics, an adequate library building with equipment, 
and a central heating plant. 

The report of the President of Brevard College conveys the information that 
the college has a present enrollment of 394 students, a remarkable enrollment for 
the opening year. The college now has a faculty of 24 Christian men and women, 
who are devoted to the principles on which the college was established. The 
President states that applications are already being received for September, j 935, 
and that indications are that the present facilities will be entirely inadequate to 
accommodate the hundreds of young people who will wish to come to Brevard 
College next year. Fifteen young men in the college are preparing for the 
ministry, and a Christian atmosphere surrounds the institution. Brevard College 
is meeting the standards of the Southern Association of Colleges, with the excep- 
tion of the single item of endowment. It is necessary to provide adequate and 
stable financial support for this school. 

The report from the Board of Managers of the Pastors' School states that 
this school ran simultaneously with the Institute on International Relations and 
the Rural Church Institute. The attendance was unusually large, and 62 more 
credits were issued this year than last year. 

The amount apportioned by the Commission on Budget to the Board of 
Christian Education is $41,7 74. We recommend that the apportionments for 
schools and colleges total $30,000; that from the amount collected for schools 
and colleges, the sum of $1,140 be used for the payment of the coupons of the 
$19,000 second mortgage bonds of Rutherford College as they mature; and that 
the remainder be appropriated as follows:

REPORT OF SPECIAL CONFERENCE EDUCATIONAL 
COMMISSION 

Your Educational Commission was continued by the 193 3 session of the 
Conference for the purpose of seeing that the will of the Conference was carried 
out "in regard to the merging of Weaver and Rutherford Colleges in the new 
institution." 

The Commission was relieved of any responsibility for carrying out the will 
of the Conference in regard to Greensboro and Davenport Colleges, inasmuch 
as this responsibility was placed by the Conference in the hands of the Inter- 
Conference Commission. 

Two other actions of the Conference specifically limited the responsibility 
of your Commission: First, the Conference adopted the report of the Commission 
"That the Conference, without assuming any legal obligations in connection 
with the affairs of Rutherford College, give the Board of Trustees of Ruther- 
ford College further time to effect liquidation before its final merger with 
Brevard College is effected." 

Second, the Conference bv its action gave instruction "That Weaver College 
be merged with Brevard College. Brevard College, according to the law of the 
State of North Carolina, to take over all assets and liabilities of Weaver College." 
The Conference further voted "That the Trustees of Weaver College are hereby 



Western North Carolina Conference 57 

authorized and directed to transfer to Brevard College all of the property, ac- 
counts receivable, and all liabilities of Weaver College to Brevard College, 
transfer to be effected within sixty days after the close of academic year, 1933- 
1934." 

This direct action of the Conference, both as regards the present status of 
Rutherford College and the merging of Weaver College with Brevard College, 
has made unnecessary any new or important activity on the part of your Com- 
mission, otherwise than the following: 

On January 23rd, 1934, the Commission met in Charlotte for the completion 
of its duties in regard to Brevard College. On the same day and at the same 
place, the Commission met with the Trustees of Brevard College, and gave such 
assistance as seemed desirable in connection with the organization of the Brevard 
College Board. 

The Commission has properly executed the transfer to the Board of Trustees 
of Brevard College of all titles of property received by the Commission in behalf 
of the Conference for the new institution. 

We are advised that the merging of Weaver College with Brevard College, 
under the instructions of the Conference, has proceeded satisfactorily. The work, 
therefore, of your Commission in this part of the merger is at an end. 

In respect to the special action of the last Conference, empowering the Com- 
mission to negotiate with other schools, conferences or organizations seeking to 
join us in supporting Brevard College, your Commission reports that it has not 
been approached by any conference, school or organization seeking such co- 
operation. 

Inasmuch as it is apparent that the way is not yet open to merge Rutherford 
College with Brevard College, your Commission recommends the renewal of the 
action of a year ago, "That the Conference, without assuming any legal obliga- 
tions in connection with the affairs of Rutherford College, give the Board of 
Trustees of Rutherford College further time to effect liquidation before its final 
merger with Brevard College is effected." 

Finally, your Commission, having to the best of its ability discharged the 
responsibilities placed upon it by the Conference, and, finding no work at the 
present time that calls for its further services, asks for its own discontinuance, 
and recommends the transfer to the Conference Board of Christian Education 
of such responsibilities of the Conference in connection with Brevard and Ruther- 
ford Colleges, as remain to be carried forward. 

Your Commission is instructing its Secretary to turn over all records of the 
Commission, including the minutes of all meetings, to the Chairman of the 
Conference Board of Christian Education. 

(Signed) JOHN W. SHACKFORD, Vice-Chairman, 
J. F. SPRUILL, Secretary.

REPORT OF BOARD OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 

We believe that Christian literature has an increasing place of usefulness in 
the educational ami spiritual life of our church. We deplore the widespread 
indulgence of our people in other than the best literature, and we would give 
the Holy Bible its rightful place at the center of our home life, and urge our 
people to select and read only such literature as will strengthen their Christian 
character and bring them into a more intimate fellowship with God. 



Western North Carolina Conference 59 

publishing house 

Our Publishing - House audit shows a profit for 1934 of a little more than 
4%. This is a happy contrast to a loss of 1% for 1933. The Publishing House, 
however, faces a period of increased costs in the production of all our peri- 
odicals due to the codes of the National Recovery Administration, and will find 
difficulty in maintaining the present low price level on our periodicals. This 
the Publishing House hopes to be able to do. We call your attention to the high 
merit of our Sunday school periodicals. They receive warm commendation from 
educators and Christian workers. Efforts to improve them never cease. The 
Christian Advocate is a superior journal, not surpassed bv anv denominational 
paper. Its subscription list, however, falls far short of sustaining it. The diligent 
endeavors of our pastors are earnestly solicited in its behalf. 

Under the imprint of Cokesbury Press our Publishing House issues a number 
of carefully selected books each year. These books are chosen for their spiritual 
message and are worthy of wide circulation. 

The Publishing House is grateful for the kind consideration it receives from 
our ministers and members, and is happy to report that this year the Book Com- 
mittee has appropriated $60.00 to the superannuates. 

NORTH CAROLINA CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE 

The North Carolina Christian Advocate shows a net profit for the year of a 
little more than $2,000. This has been made possible by an increase in the pro- 
duction of its commercial printing department, and by salary reductions. There 
has, however, been a reduction in income from subscriptions. 

The Advocate is starting a campaign to enlarge the subscription list by 
adding annual subscribers instead of the short term special rate efforts employed 
the past few years when money was so scarce. A united effort on the part of 
every one should be secured to make this campaign a success. We trust that this 
Conference will take some definite action to give the Advocate a new place in 
North Carolina Methodism. 

A special effort lias been made this year to give our people a deeper apprecia- 
tion of the secret of Methodist success by featuring the Sesqui-Centennial and 
the things for which it stands. 

To forward the work of our Zion is always the chief concern of the Advocate, 
nor does it forget the general welfare of all the people. The Advocate might 
do more in this respect if it did not have to spend so much time and energy and 
no little space in taking care of a hard pressed financial situation. 

We request the Conference to make the following order concerning the 
future of our church paper: 

1. A united and continuous effort on the part of preachers and laymen to 
make the North Carolina Christian Advocate an ever enlarging force in the 
social, the educational, and the religious life of our state. 

2. Put the circulation of the North Carolina Christian Advocate on a level 
with missions, religious education, orphanages and other interests of the church. 
Then we will have one common agent — our church paper — for promoting all 
the interests of the church. 

3. Urge all pastors and the Chairmen of Boards to put this Advocate into 
the home of every Steward so that the Board of Lay Activities, which is now 
the Board of Stewards, may become informed and the church thereby may have 
an intelligent leadership. 



60 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

4. Make the ultimate goal for pastors, lay leaders and missionary women 
the putting of the church paper in every Methodist home. This will mean a 
better Advocate and better homes ami better churches. A united campaign to this 
end will result in full collections, and better paid ministers and missionaries. 
Lack of knowledge and want of fellowship witli the Christ is the hurt of our 
people. Our redemption — the healing of this hurt — must be found in the output 
of the printing press and the fellowship of a spiritual ministry. 

We recommend that N. L. Eure succeed himself as a member of our Board 
of Publication, and that A. W. Plvler be appointed Editor and Manager of the 
Advocate. 

(Signed) A. W. PLYLER, 

W. ARTHUR BARBER. 



BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 1 

In view of the importance of the cause of missions we urge that every 
occasion and every agency be used to forward this cause. In the church school 
and the Woman's Missionary Societv we have agencies that can be used most 
effectively. Our first effort must be toward recreating missionary interest and 
missionary enthusiasm. 

1. To this end we urge every pastor to give himself with unstinted devo- 
tion to presenting the new financial plan of the church; that each Presiding Elder 
arrange for missionary institutes and group meetings in his District in order 
that the subject may be kept constantly before our people. 

2. It is the sense of the Conference that one-half of our present mission 
charges should become self-supporting within this quadrennium. We believe this 
can be hastened by consolidating and re-locating our churches at strategic centers. 
To this end we instruct our Board of Missions and Presiding Elders. 

3. We recommend that every pastor assist to his utmost in the organization 
of a Woman's Missionary Society in each charge. 

4. Many congregations will be interested in carrying missionary specials. 
Where this can be done it should be done. 

5. The Golden Cross should be featured on at least one Sunday in each year, 
and information with reference to our hospital at Elkin furnished our people. 

6. We recommend that a Commission be appointed by the Bishop to study 
the whole question of Conference missions. 

EVANGELISM 

The purpose of all evangelistic effort is twofold: 

1. Deepening the spiritual life of our membership. 

2. Bringing in those who have not been reached. 

Both ends are very much to be sought: the first, because so many people 
are just nominal members; the second, because people ought to be coming into 
the church, but they are not in very great numbers as evidenced by the figures — 
only 3% increase by profession of faith having been registered in our Confer- 
ence last year. 

Without discussion, we suggest that the church should use every available 
method to attain these ends, not necessarily following only one' when we have so 
many at hand : 

1. Revivals — or mass evangelism. 

2. Personal evangelism. 

3. Visitation evangelism. 

4. Christian nurture. 



Western North Carolina Conference 61 

The mechanics are less essential than the realization of the importance of 
the task, but we submit as follows: 

1. Every church ought to have an annual evangelistic campaign — preferably- 
just before Easter. This should be carefully planned, preceded by survey, con- 
scientiously prepared for, and enthusiastically carried out. 

2. Classes should be formed in all churches for training children in the 
meaning of church membership as related to Christian living. These classes should 
be under the direction of the pastor or some other trained and devout worker. 
Constant recognition should be given the fact that the home is central in reli- 
gious life; wherever possible, effort should be made to secure decisions there 
and the church school should continue the work begun there. 

3. Every agency in the church should stress evangelism. The church school 
should be definitely organized for this purpose; the Woman's Missionary Society 
and the Board of Stewards, through the committee on Evangelism, should be 
made to feel that this is their chief work. 

4. In many churches a carefully selected group of men and women should 
be called in by the pastor and trained for and encouraged to do this work. 
The prime requisite for such a group is that they be those who have a definite 
religious experience. 

5. We recognize that no evangelism can be successful in a coldly unspiritual 
church or can be led by a ministry that is not conscious of the Holy Spirit. We 
pray that our ministers tarry first at their own altars until they know God for 
themselves and until they can say with deep truth, "Give me souls or I die." 

(Signed) L. B. ABERNETHY, Chairman, 
J. D. RANKIN, Secretary. 



BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 2 

The members of the Board of Missions take encouragement from the reports 
of the pastors which indicate that the downward trend in missionary activities 
has been arrested. Conditions seem opportune and challenging for undertaking 
a great forward movement along this line. Various factors have contributed to 
our successful operation in church progress. We wish to make mention of one, 
the Duke Endowment. 

The report of the Duke Fund Commission shows that contributions from the 
Duke Endowment to the North Carolina and the Western North Carolina Con- 
ferences, November 1, 193 3, through September 3 0, 19 34, were: 
Church Building Fund: 

Number of appropriations _ 1 5 

Amount appropriated $ 1 7,725.00 

Church Maintenance Fund: 

Number of appropriations 174 

Amount appropriated $49,050.00 

Superannuate Fund: 

Number of appropriations 249 

Amount appropriated •_ $2 8,000.00 

Your Board makes the following recommendations: 

1. That special attention be given to the spread of missionary information 

throughout the church. That for this purpose the period from January 28th to 

February 8th be designated as Conference Missionary Week, and that the Pre- 



62 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

siding- Elders be requested to arrange a schedule of missionary institutes to be 
held in each District during this period. 

2. That Dr. L. B. Abernethy be appointed Conference Missionary Secretary 
and Director of the Golden Cross. 

3. That a Committee on Evangelism be appointed consisting of the follow- 
ing seven members: E. K. McLarty, L. B. Abernethy, E. W. Fox, H. P. Powell, 
A. A. Kyles, Paul Hardin, Jr., John Cline. 

4. That J. R. Church be appointed Conference Evangelist.

REPORT OF BOARD OF CHURCH EXTENSION 

Careful consideration has been given each application submitted to this Board. 

We regret that so many hold their applications until the Annual Conference 
convenes, which does not give the Board ample time to check and, where in- 
complete, secure the required information to intelligently pass upon the applica- 
tion. It would facilitate the work if all applications were completed and filed 



Western North Carolina Conference 65 

with the Secretary at least two weeks before the date of the Annual Conference. 

We recommend full insurance protection on all church property. 

We strongly endorse the suggestions made by Dr. Ellis in his appeal that 
church debts be reduced. The attitude of this Board is naturally more favorable 
to the applicants who are faithfully trying to reduce their indebtedness. 

As usual, funds coming into the hands of this Board are limited, but we 
have distributed the funds we received as equally and fairly as possible among 
the various applicants, and wish to report the following grants : 

Donations 

Churches: Chapel Hill $5 00.00

REPORT OF COMMISSION ON BUDGET 

In view of the fact that this Conference has a large superannuate roll, large 
areas of mission territory, and that our schools and colleges are in sore distress, 
your Commission recommends that General and Conference funds be divided on 
the basis of .4800 for General work and .5200 for Conference work for this 
year, at least. 

We recommend that the apportionment for the Children's Home continue at 
an amount equal to ten per cent (10%) of the pastor's salary for the current 
year; that the fifth Sunday offering by all our Sunday schools be continued as 
a free will offering to the home; and that the fifth Sunday offerings and all 
other contributions for maintenance to the home be reported in a separate column 
from the ten per cent report in the Conference Journal. 

We recommend that no Board, interest or cause, be authorized or permitted 
to make any special appeal for funds in or to any of our churches within the 
bounds of this Conference, except such as are herein named and recognized and 
Brevard College. This is not designed to disturb "Specials" now in effect or to 
prevent their renewal. 

We recommend that apportionments to Districts be allowed to stand as of 
this coming year, as far as practical, throughout this quadrennium. The appor- 
tionments by the General Commission on Budget to this Conference for General 
work is $110,974. We recommend the acceptance of this amount.

REPORT OF HOSPFFAL BOARD 

The Hospital Board submits the accompanying reports of the Director of the 
Golden Cross and of the Board of Directors of our Hugh Chatham Memorial 
Hospital, showing that a great service has been given by our hospital. We are 
proud to see that all bills are paid, or the funds in hand to pay them. 

Dr. T. A. Hathcock, our Treasurer, reports that two thousand three hundred 
and thirty-four dollars and eighty-one cents ($2,334.8 1) has been raised during 
the last year through the Golden Cross. In addition, the sum of three hundred 
thirty-seven and thirty-three cents ($337.33) has been raised through the Con- 
ference assessments for the expenses of the Golden Cross Director. 

In making report of the work of the Golden Cross, the first item called to 
your attention is the note of $3,000 owed by the General Hospital Board to the 
Board of Missions. This note was to be retired out of the proceeds from Kingdom 
Extension, but this fund only amounted to $50 3.96. In January, 1934, we paid 
$500.00 on the note with interest of $13 5.01) out of the Golden Cross. In April, 
19 34, the General Hospital Board sent to me a check for $680.00. This was 
applied on the note and, as the Hospital Board was discontinued, the General 
Hospital Board appropriated $1,572.29 out of the general funds in their hands,

on 



retiring- the note in full. The Duke Endowment made an appropriation of 
$1,500 to match an equal amount raised by private subscription to put in extra 
boiler and laundry equipment in the hospital. This $3,000 has not all been ex- 
pended, there being- still in the treasury $600.00 to be used for further equip- 
ment of laundry. 

During- the year we have secured from the Duke Endowment the sum of 
$2,500 and have secured from private parties in Elkin the sum of $1,000, and 
were instructed by Dr. Jarrell to use out of the Golden Cross as much as neces- 
sary of the $1,572.29 to match the $2,500 of the Duke Endowment, and to 
build a home for the Superintendent on the hospital grounds. Chatham Manu- 
facturing- Company has donated a lot adjoining the fifteen acres belonging to 
the hospital. This is deeded to the hospital to be used for this Superintendent's 
home. 

I have attended most of the District Conferences, all the set-up meetings, and 
have made two trips to Atlanta to get this indebtedness paid.

of Temperance and Social Service of this Conference. During this time the Board 
has endeavored, in harmony with the provisions of the Discipline, "to advance 
the cause of Temperance and Social Service in the Conference by pointing out 
the applications of Christian principles to particular social problems and condi- 
tions" and by "co-operating with other Boards of the church and with other 
denominational and inter-denominational agencies for social welfare." 

In this endeavor the Board has been guided by Chapter xviii of the Discipline 
on the Evils of Intemperance, and by the Social Creed of the Churches, which 
is also a part of our Discipline, and by the pronouncements of the College of 
Bishops, as they have been made from time to time. In advancing the cause of 
temperance we have co-operated with the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, 
the Anti-Saloon League, and have urged co-operation with enforcement officers 
in the state and nation. This Board was organized about the same time that 
prohibition became nation-wide through the adoption of the 18th Amendment 
to the Constitution. When the movement for repeal began and until it was ended 
this Board and the Conference fought every step of the way. And when ratifica- 
tion of the "repeal amendment" was sweeping through the states it was due to 
the aroused public conscience of the churches that North Carolina was the first 
state to stem that tide, and under the leadership of pastors and laymen rolled up 
the victory vote for "no repeal." 

Since policies demanded by an educated social conscience must become authori- 
tative in society through corresponding legislation by means of the ballot, it has 
been the duty of this Board to point out needed legislation ; to call for the 
formulation of bills to be presented to the legislature and to urge support for 
bills in the interest of public welfare and morals. In reviewing the history of 
the Board in this regard it is evident that measures to promote the welfare of a 
mute majority have taken a large place. Measures for the care of children, for 
the dependent, the defective, the delinquent, for working children, for schools, 
for recreation, for all children in our homes and communities, have bulked 
largely. 

Members of this Board have answered calls to speak for measures before the 
legislature; some of those measures failed to carry and are yet waiting the sup- 
port of right-thinking citizens. Some have been enacted into laws. We present 
in review actions taken in the interest of such legislation, beginning with the first. 

In 1918 the Board called for a reformatory for young white girls committed 
from the courts. This was established years later at Samarcand. Also for a reform- 
atory for colored boys, for which the bill passed in 1921, an appropriation was 
made in 1922, and buildings begun in 1923; 1920 shows the first formal appeal 
for our public schools in the demand for better buildings, longer terms and 
larger salaries for teachers. This demand has been met progressively through the 
years until the recession of the depression. The years 1931, 1932, and 1933 have 
marked a steady and ominous decline in public school facilities threatening the 
health and efficiency of both teachers and pupils throughout the system. 

In 1921 a Mothers' Aid law was advocated. A law was enacted in 1923; 
its provisions were accepted at once by 42 counties. Generous recognition was 
given to the members of this Conference for their part in securing this result. 
In 1922 the segregation and training of prisoners between the ages of 17 and 
21 years was recommended and support asked for the Federal Child Labor 
Amendment. 



76 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

In 1923 the Trustees of the Children's Home were urged to plan for some 
form of Mothers' Aid to be extended to worthy mothers in need of assistance. 
The plan has been adopted and has proved of immense value in keeping children 
under the care of their own mothers. The same report called for support for the 
plan of the State Commissioner of Public Welfare for the formation of a Bureau 
of Negro Welfare under the supervision of a trained colored worker: that negro 
families might receive advice ami training in home sanitation, health ami morals. 
This Bureau was established in 1926 by the state with the aid of the Laura 
Spelman Rockefeller Fund. A great work has been done since then by Lieutenant 
Oxley and his co-workers to the lessening of disease ami delinquency. Support 
of the Child Labor Amendment again was urged. In 1925 was advocated the 
restoration of the $20,000 appropriation cut from the Mothers' Aid Fund in 
1924. This was granted by the Legislature of 1926, and in that vear the Board 
recommended the people to support an appropriation to this fund of $100,000. 
In 1926 members of the Conference were asked to use their influence for an 
eight-months school term for all children, x'lnd in the same year to work for 
such changes in state laws as would reduce legal maximum hours of gainful 
labor from 60 hours per week for children of 14 years to 48 hours per week 
for all under 16 years. Changes in the law since that time record the progress 
in the thinking of our voters in these respects. Support from the state was asked 
for the School for Delinquent Negro Girls at Efland for the second time. A 
small appropriation was made by the Legislature to this school in 192 7 to 
supplement the sacrificial giving of the Colored Women's Federated Clubs of 
North Carolina. 

In 1927 the adoption of this school by the state was urged. Approval was 
placed on record of the action of the Child Labor Committee of the National 
Association of Manufacturers and the recommendation was made that their stand- 
ards for the protection of children and adolescents be promoted as the basis of 
a Federal Child Labor law. 

In 1928 adoption of the Efland School by the state was again brought for- 
ward and legislation advocated for the elimination of night work by adolescents. 
At the Conference of 1928, following a recommendation of this Board, a Com- 
mission on Industrial Relations was appointed, and from that date on, all matters 
relating' to industry were referred to the Commission, which is still active. 

The preceding sums up the main points of policy tending toward legislation 
for child welfare which have been presented to the Conference for the guidance 
of its members in exercising their privileges of citizenship in the spirit of the 
Elder Brother. 

Other recommendations have been made to secure legislative action in other 
matters and further prevent the passage of bills which the Board believed were 
inimical to the public welfare or public morals. On recommendation of the 
Board, a Conference Committee was appointed to attend legislative committee 
hearings on a bill to legalize prize fights. The bill was defeated at that session. 
Similar action was taken with reference to a bill to permit pari-mutuel gambling. 
It was defeated at one session and passed in modified form at the last session. 
Its status now is that a county may vote for or against pari-mutuel gambling 
in that county at a special election. Certain forms of commercialized recreation 
have sought legalization for Sunday exhibition and have been in similar wise 
prevented or checked by partial safeguards, through the influence of representa- 
tives of the churches. 

This review of certain phases of welfare legislation in the state when care- 
fully studied shows in clear relief two major facts. The first is that advances. 
come in waves, remarkable progress being followed by a backwash of retrogres- 



Western North Carolina Conference 77 

sion in public sentiment either from apathy or because materialistic influences 
have gained control. At certain periods North Carolina has been pointed out by 
other states for her phenomenal progress in welfare legislation, as seen when its 
system of county welfare officers, juvenile courts, mothers' aid, consolidated rural 
schools, good roads and workmen's compensation laws were enacted. The second 
fact is that the church, as represented in its membership, is a power behind these 
beneficent functions of government. It would be strange if the church in North 
Carolina, representing Christ on earth, whose charter is from Him and xvhose 
fellowship is in His Name, should fail to look upon the franchise as sacred, to 
be exercised in compassion and justice to all men. 

We face another legislative year when issues are sharply denned between right 
and wrong in the protection of the people of the state from the evils of legalized 
liquor. How will you retain these laws still on our statute books? Will you be 
vocal or silent: Will you make your convictions known to your representatives 
or allow defeat through apathy or fear: This is the last word that we, as a 
Board, shall speak to this Conference on the burning question. Police records of 
arrests for drunkenness, for crimes committed under the influence of liquor, and 
the death toll on our highways should shock us wide awake! 

Economic issues are confused, and certain issues stand clear from the mass 
of conflicting plans and ideas. When men walk the streets looking for work, and 
thousands cannot find it; while able young men call at our doors for food; while 
they tramp the highways, leading to this mill or that, in the vain hope of finding 
a job, we know it is no time to split hairs about ages and hours and school 
standards for working children. The temporary release of children from mill and 
store and office must, for the very safety of our economic order, be made perman- 
ent. Once and for all let us, through state and federal enactment, put an end to 
the gainful toil of children under the age of 16, save under such limitations as 
shall insure to them schooling, outdoor life and health. 

We have no fear of the eventual outcome in all these matters but we are 
ardently concerned for the immediate future. What are you going to do about 
the menace of the movies: 

The public in general and parents in particular have too long endured a 
sex-obsessed theatre in which vulgarity runs riot and salacious scenes flaunt their 
vileness. A great artistic possibility, a vast educational instrumentality is prosti- 
tuted by pandering to the lowest of impulses. Censorship has been tried and failed. 
Producers have promised to observe the famous 1 5 points and straightway broken 
every one of them. Bills to control pictures at the point of production and to 
abolish the evils of block booking and blind buying have failed of passage at 
Washington, for obvious reasons. The public has seemed at the mercy of a rich 
and powerful aggregation of producers. At last, out of the heart of the church 
a solution has been offered. It appeals to the individual; it is democratic; it 
registers at the box office. What will you do with the Legion of Decency? Your 
Bishops have commended it, the Woman's Missionary Council is promoting it, 
and the General Board of Christian Education is interested in it. Will you, 
pastors and laymen and laywomen, secure the bits of pasteboard that, when 
signed, bear the declaration of the signer's purpose to remain away from all 
indecent motion pictures? We believe this policy faithfully followed will be 
the first effective step toward cleaning up the movies. 

What will you do with the gambling mania which lures coins from the 
pockets 6f idle boys and men? Gambling devices are installed in hotel lobbies, 
filling stations, drug stores, cigar stores and barber shops — wherever men may 
chance to be passing a leisure hour. Slot machines are reaping a rich harvest 
of money worse than wasted. An apparently innocent pastime develops into a 



Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

passion. This passion for hanging hopes on the lucky chance becomes one of the 
most devastating evils. We beg you to fight it in all its forms — fight it at the 
next Assembly, fight it constructively and see that proper laws are passed for 
the control of this insidious and demoralizing invention of greedy men. It will 
take a never ceasing vigilance to secure passage and enforcement. 

Throughout all these years this Board has spoken in the interest of the negro 
people of the state, that they should be shown fairness and consideration in all 
civic affairs. We again speak for them their rightful share in all tax-supported 
services, in health supervision, welfare administration, public school funds, com- 
munity sanitation, and public recreation. And in these times of stress and strain 
we beg employers of labor to remember the part the negro race has played in 
the upbuilding of the industrial and economic South; to see that negroes are 
not unfairly thrust from places in which their work is satisfactory to make room 
for members of another race. 

We especially commend to employers of agricultural labor a course of 
generosity and patience in dealing with tenants and croppers of both races in 
situations that have grown acute. 

This Board has consistentlv taken its stand against war as a method of 
settling international disputes and we now express our approval of the 8-point 
peace program of the Executive Committee of the Federal Council of the 
Churches of Christ in America which is: 

1 . Support of a multi-lateral pact against aggression. 

2. Presidential power to declare an embargo on munitions and loans to an 
aggressor nation. 

3. Government control of arms and munitions industry. 

+ . Withholding of appropriations for naval building under the Vinson Bill. 

5. Abolition of all aggressive weapons. 

6. Renunciation, except for strictly police purposes, of all military and 
naval aviation, and international supervision of commercial aviation. 

7. Adherence to the World Court. 

8. Definition of the terms upon which the United States will join the 
League of Nations and negotiation of reciprocal tariff agreements by the United 
States with other nations. 

We believe in the association of Christian forces in the state for the good of 
all its people, and to that end we recommend that the affiliation of this Confer- 
ence with the State Legislative Council (formerly the State Council of Social, 
Civic and Religious Agencies) be continued; that a representative to that Council 
from this Conference be appointed and the agency membership fee of $25.00 
be appropriated and paid. 

In order that the records may be complete in the minutes of the Boards of 
this Conference, we offer this resolution: 

1. That the report of the Board of Temperance and Social Service and 
the report of the Commission on Industrial Relations, as presented at the anni- 
versary, be adopted without further reading, and, 

2. That, since the Board of Temperance and Social Service has been 
abolished, whatever funds remain in the hands of the Treasurer of the Board, 
after the expenses incident to this Annual Conference have been paid, shall be 
returned to the Treasurer of this Conference.

MRS. W. A. NEWELL, Secretary. 



Western North Carolina Conference 79 



REPORT OF COMMISSION ON INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS 

At the last session of this Conference the report of your Commission was laid 
upon the table. Whether this action was due to the pressure of time or to the 
unwillingness of the Conference to face the issues presented in the report is 
unknown to your Commission. In that report we undertook to bring- to the 
attention of the Conference conditions in our industrial life which we felt sure 
would eventuate in strikes, lockouts and forcible shutouts with the attendant 
evils of loss in production, loss in wages, loss of life, and that most irreparable 
loss of all — the loss of mutual confidence and respect between employers and 
employees. 

The last few months have garnered a harvest of turmoil and uproar. This 
is especially true of the textile industry. At one time at least one-half of our 
textile plants were closed. This was due to strikes, flying squadrons, fears of 
managements resulting in closing down the plants. The Governor of North 
Carolina called out more than 4,000 soldiers for the maintenance of law and 
order, thus entailing great expense upon the state. 

These events are of such recent occurrence and the time of the Conference 
available for discussion of this report is so limited that your Commission will 
not attempt to recite the cause or to assess results, but we are convinced that if 
recurrence of such situations is to be prevented in the future, leadership must be 
assumed and maintained by the church. 

North Carolina lias opportunity to blaze the way toward permanent peace in 
industry. This state has a negligible foreign-born population. Our colored people 
do not engage to any large degree in industrial pursuits. From the most recent 
recruit to the ranks of labor, straight through to the mill owner himself, we 
are of one blood and inheritors of identical traditions, depressed by the same 
fears and imbued by the same hopes. In addition to all this we, as a people, 
profess the same evangelical faith, bow at the same altars and hope to meet 
again in the heavenly places. From the cradle to the grave we are neighbors and 
friends. Surely no industrial society has ever had such abounding opportunity 
for the promotion of ideal conditions in any industry. 

It is not in the province of the church to exercise power, save that of the 
compulsion of love and good will. Nor would we attempt to coerce either em- 
ployees or employers. But your Commission begs this Conference that we shall 
gladly co-operate with them in every effort to attain that state of peace in 
which all shall prosper. The church can and should make this contribution. 

We call upon the ownership and management of our industries for ceaseless 
endeavor in building up closer contacts with the operatives. The church has no 
fear of so-called paternalism if this paternalism in its inception, support and 
direction, be of mutual origin, and is carried forward in the spirit of our 
Blessed Master. Such paternalism means fraternity. If management does not 
establish and promote this fraternal spirit, management can not object to its 
being built up out of alien ideals and under alien leadership. This contribution 
must be of free-will and good-will. Any industry that is not willing to hear 
and consider the voice of the humblest operative will inevitably be called upon 
to hear the voice of alien leadership. 

Another good the church should endeavor to secure is that which expresses 
itself in community activities. Since each industry in our state is the center and 
source of community life, this life should be wide in extent and rich in content. 
Night schools, garden clubs, Parent- Teacher Associations, clubs for boys and girls, 
supervised recreation and similar activities should be promoted. And, of course, 
the church should be central in all these activities. The shorter working week 



80 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

and shorter working hours make all these imperative needs lest our leisure de- 
generate into license. 

We beg the industrial worker to endeavor to exercise the highest type of 
fraternity, not only toward his fellow worker, but to those who direct the 
industry. Each of us draws daily sustenance from the common store and each 
should be insistent upon the right to contribute to the common good. Let every 
Christian join with his fellows in high resolve that we shall solve these problems 
in the spirit of Jesus Christ, and that 'when differences arise, they shall be dis- 
cussed and settled with Christ as supreme arbitrator. 

We appeal to all our pastors to lead in bringing about these desired results. 
There is every reason why the preacher should be the real leader in the settlement 
of such questions and differences as may arise. That is one great purpose of the 
church and of its ministry. This request is made not to preachers in industrial 
churches only. The need is just as insistent that this leadership be accepted in 
all our churches, for the Kingdom of God does not come in fullness until it 
comes in the hearts of men of all ranks and avocations. We are aware of the 
fact that it is not always the popular thing to do and that men of contrary 
motive will resent such leadership but it is not necessary that a cause inherently 
right should be popular. We may rest assured that any cause which undertakes 
to hush the voice of the pulpit is in itself an evil cause. 

The Social Creed of the Churches, found upon page 3 00 of our Discipline, 
is a great charter of liberty and righteousness. It has the full approval of our 
great church. We commend it to our people for study and practice. 

The North Carolina Council of Civic, Social and Religious Agencies has 
been re-named "The North Carolina Legislative Council." We recommend that 
this Conference retain its membership in the Council and that an appropriation 
of twenty-five dollars be made to cover this membership fee. 



REPORT OF BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES 

Your Conference Board of Lay Activities submits its report together with 
the following recommendations: 

I. NEW LEGISLATION 

We call particular attention to the legislation of the last General Conference 
affecting our objectives and organization. The objectives have been clarified, the 
organization simplified, and additional responsibilities placed upon our Board. 
These are clearly set forth in the new Discipline, but we wish to direct your 
special attention to one matter, namely: that the Board of Stewards has full 
responsibility for the entire program of lay activities in the local charge, and 
the Chairman of the Charge Board of Stewards is the Charge Lay Leader, elected 
by the Board of Stewards. The necessity for the careful organization of every 
Charge Board of Stewards is apparent, if the lav organization is to make the 
proper contact in every local charge. The development of a well-organized, 
wide-awake, active, broad-visioned, loyal Board of Stewards in every charge in 
the Western North Carolina Conference is our <, r oal for this year. We strongly 
recommend that our Boards of Stewards organize along the lines suggested in 
the pamphlet on "The Board of Stewards," now being issued by the General 
Board of Lay Activities, and being distributed by our Conference Board. We 
urge that all our Boards of 1 Stewards studv their task. For this purpose we recom- 
mend especially the following books: "The Board of Stewards," by George L. 



Western North Carolina Conference 



Morelock, and "Financial Recovery for the Local Church," by J. E. Crawford. 
We recommend also that Institutes for Stewards be held in each Presiding Elder's 
District. 

II. BENEVOLENCES 

We are facing one of the most crucial periods in the history of our church — 
the transition from the old to the new financial plan. The new financial plan 
offers, we believe, great possibilities for developing in our membership a new 
vision, zeal, lovalty, and consecration. This can be brought about, however, 
only by education and the execution of sound plans of church finance. Hence 
we make the following recommendations : 

1. That a mass meeting of Stewards and other church officers be held in 
each District as soon as practicable after the session of the Annual Conference, 
for the purpose of giving information concerning the New Financial Plan and 
creating inspiration for the acceptance by each Quarterly Conference of an 
amount for General and Conference w^ork that will represent a generous share 
in the benevolent program of our church; that the Bishop, the Presiding Elders, 
and the Conference and District Lay Leaders be requested to give full directions 
to all the details of the program. 

2. That a Conference-wide campaign on Evangelism and emphasis on 
Benevolences be conducted some time in the beginning of 193 5, the Bishop to 
give direction to the necessary details of program of this movement, the Lay 
organization to assist to its limit. 

3. That an unusual effort be made to pay half of all benevolences by Easter. 
+. That special emphasis on Benevolences and the New Financial PlaiA be 

provided at the sessions of the District Conferences. 

«■ 
III. SUPPORT OF THE MINISTRY <j 

^ We recognize the fact that a large number of our ministers d 
an adequate support. They and their families have been forced to bear excessive 
hardships and to deny themselves many things that would have contributed to 
their efficiency, usefulness, and happiness. 'We would insist that every Board of 
Stewards, after consultation with the pastor as to what is necessary for his support, 
shall regard the amount fixed as a moral obligation not to be loosely abrogated, 
and that, as far as possible, the pastor's salary be paid monthly. 

IV. CHRISTIAN STEWARDSHIP 

We urge that Stewardship education be continued and intensified along all 
approved lines, especially through study classes in Standard schools, Standard 
classes, as an elective in the organized classes of the church school, the distribu- 
tion of literature, lay programs, and pageants. 

V. LAYMEN'S DAY 

We recommend the continued observance of Laymen's Day and ask that the 
Conference designate the second Sunday in June, or a Sunday as near thereto as 
possible, for this purpose, and that a real effort be made to have a Laymen's 
Day service in each church in the Conference. The subject adopted by the General 
Board is related, in a special way, to the responsibility of our Board in the field 
of social problems: "We are in the fight for:" 1. The Christian Home; A Chris- 
tian Industrial Order; A Sober Nation; A Warless World. 




82 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

VI. 

We urge that our Stewards attend the Stewards' Conference at Lake Juna- 
luska, July 21-28, 1935, which is to be conducted by the General Board of Lay 
Activities. 

VII. CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE 

The Nashville Christian Advocate is now the official organ of the Lav organi- 
zation. The North Carolina Christian Advocate is also our organ in this Con- 
ference. We place ourselves solidly behind the promotion of the circulation of 
these fine papers. They should be in the home of every Methodist family in our 
Conference. Certainly no Methodist Steward can do without these papers if he 
wishes to make himself the efficient Steward of the church that God would have 
him be. 

VIII. SOCIAL WELFARE 

We feel keenly the responsibility the General Conference has given our Board 
in charging it with the great task of quickening our people with a deeper con- 
sciousness of the social gospel of Jesus. The Social Creed of the Churches, ap- 
proved by the General Conference and found in the 1934 Discipline in the 
Chapter of Lay Activities, sets forth sixteen principles of such broad nature and 
so difficult of attainment, that we urge every pastor and layman to think them 
through prayerfully, until lie has become thoroughlv imbued with their import, 
and has become charged with a greater passion for social justice. We urge that 
our pastors, as opportunitv may offer, instruct the members of the church along 
these lines to the end that they may be convinced that the highest human welfare 
depends upon the acceptance and practice of these principles in their relationships 
one with another. 

As matters of immediate and urgent interest we call attention to the follow- 
ing: We believe our people should be, and are, thoroughly committed to the 
'elimination of objectionable moving pictures; that protective influences should 
be thrown around the family and all destructive influences combatted ; that our 
church should throw all its force against international war and the conditions 
which make war possible; that our members should continue their efforts to 
destroy the liquor traffice with its consequent train of evils; and that there should 
be economic justice as well as social justice for the laboring classes of our nation. 

IX. 

In joint session of the Presiding Elders and the Board of Lay Activities, 
Professor Guy B. Phillips, of Greensboro, was nominated as Conference Lay 
Leader for the ensuing year.

THOMAS C. HOYLE, Secretary. 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF CHILDREN'S HOME 

The Board of Trustees of the Children's Home bring you greetings from 
354 resident children — 179 boys and 175 girls — and 126 mothers' aid children, 
a total family of 4S0 children. These youngsters range in age from eighteen 
months to over eighteen years, and have been gathered under the protection and 
direction of the Children's Home from the various areas of our Conference. 
They have come into the fostering care of your child-caring institution because 
there seemed to be no other place for them to go. They are children who have 



Western North Carolina Conference 83 

a right to look to the Methodist Church for an opportunity to make good in 
life. They are happy children and would heartily' express their gratitude, if an 
opportunity were presented, to the members of this body for the kind considera- 
tion given them. 

Our Children's Home completed its first twenty-five years of service on the 
first day of last September. During this period of time over 600 children have 
been fitted for life's duties and challenges and are now making their contribution 
to their families and to society in general. It is not a rare experience any more 
to find some former member of our foster family making particularly good in 
his field of endeavor. The output of our character making institution is quite 
encouraging. 

It will be remembered that the Children's Home is largely a gift to the 
Methodists of the Western North Carolina Conference by liberal and altruistic 
individuals. No denomination or fraternity has had more given to it for the 
care of its orphan children, nor has any denomination or fraternity a better 
equipped or better prepared institution for caring for fatherless and motherless 
boys and girls than have Western North Carolina Methodists. 

These contributions to the Children's Home have been given with the implied 
challenge that we provide for maintaining it to the very fullest extent and that 
we use its sheltering and fostering care in providing for as many deserving 
orphans as come within the range of prudence and possibility. In spite of our 
diligent efforts to provide for them there are yet many boys and girls pleading 
through their pastors and other friends for a home in our Children's Home. 
At present there are 150 children in the county poorhouses of our state. All 
too many of these have a right to look to us for a better place in which to 
live where they may r "increase in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God 
and man." 

Due to payments early in the Conference year on the ten per cent apportion- 
ments and to economical management your Children's Home has been enabled 
to take care of its enlarged family without having to go in debt. We have lived 
throughout the year on a balanced budget. The early payment of the various 
charges' ten per cent apportionment serves the Children's Home mighty well 
and also accommodates the wise handling of financial appeals to the membership 
of the local congregations. It is urgently hoped that this good policy may be 
continued. 

It is recommended that Thanksgiving time be used for securing the Children's 
Home ten per cent quota on every charge. Due to the fact that the work of the 
ensuing Conference year will have been organized by then and due to the senti- 
ment of the season it k thought that Thanksgiving can best be commemorated 
by our people in making a fitting contribution to the needs of our orphan 
children. 

It is not the thought of your Board of Trustees to over-emphasize the calls 
upon our people for the support of orphan children. We do think, however, 
that our great Conference should not deny Methodist orphan boys and girls the 
opportunity of making a success of living so long as we do not financially 
strain ourselves. Our Methodist people are asked for less and pay less for the 
care of their orphans than do the other leading denominations providing for 
orphans in the same territory. It is earnestly hoped that there may be no shrink- 
age, but an increase, in our interest in and our sharing with the little youngsters 
denied the joy and tender love and care of father and mother. 

We note with sadness the passing of Rev. J. F. Kirk, one of our valued 
associates, who was always deeply interested in the welfare of our foster chil- 
dren. Brother Kirk was closely identified with the early history of the Home and 



84 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

was an understanding: friend to its needs and services. He was a wise counsellor. 
His untimely death was a severe blow to us. 

Western North Carolina Methodism has every reason to be righteously proud 
of its child-caring- institution. Although led by sister denominations in the be- 
ginnings of institutional care of children, we can now vie with other Christian 
bodies in fittingly providing for those who most need our love and sustaining 
care. "Let us not grow weary in well doing." Doubtless our Saviour is still 
saying to us, "Inasmuch as ye have done it to one of the least of these, my 
brethren, ye have done it unto me."

G. F. IVEY, Secretary.

of Work, Section +, Spiritual Life Objectives, as published on page +9 of the

REPORT OF BIBLE BOARD 

The Bible is the word of God, a lamp to our feet anil a light to our path- 
way. 

The publication and distribution of the Bible is, therefore, one of the most 
important works of Christianity. The American Bible Society has been engaged 
in this important work for 108 years. 

The Bible still remains the best seller of all the books of the world. 

Your Board brings you the following report: 

In spite of many restrictions placed upon it by reduced income during the 
twelve months of 193 3 the American Bible Society was able to carry on all its 
activities, and at certain points to make some advances. 

1. Translation. Due chiefly to the smaller missionary forces of the churches 
in the foreign fields the Society's share in Scripture translation was somewhat 
reduced. However, in Africa the translation of the New Testament in Tetela 
(tay-te-la) went forward, progress was made in the revision of the Luba-Lulua 
New Testament, the Gospels in Shilluk were in process of revision, and the New 
Testament in Nyore (ny-or-a) was received .for publication. In Guatemala prog- 
ress was made in New Testament translation in both Quiche (kee-chay) and 
Mam. In the Philippines work was done on the revision of the Ibanag (ee-ban-ag) 
New Testament and on the Bible in Panayan (pe-naw-yn), with some progress 
in the translation of the Old Testament into Samareno. In China the revision of 
the New Testament in the Hinghwa Colloquial was completed. In Turkey the 
revision of the Old Testament for publication in the Roman alphabet advanced. 

Statistics recently compiled show that the entire Bible has been translated into 
175 languages and that Scripture translation has occurred in a grand total of 
940 languages and dialects. 

2. Publication, During the year the complete New Testament and Genesis 
in Turkish, recently revised, were published in the Roman alphabet, and the 
publication of the Gospel of St. Matthew for the Keres (kee-rees) Indians in 
New Mexico, and Psalms in Samareno (Philippine Islands) also occurred. For 



Western North Carolina Conference 85 



the first time the four Gospels and Acts were each published in separate volumes 
in Bulu (West Africa). 

A significant item during the year was the publication of a new series of 
self-pronouncing Bibles and Testaments produced from new plates with type 
specially manufactured for the purpose. In this series a splendid Bible at only 
25c, a substantial paper bound New Testament for 5c and large size Gospels 
at 2c are obtainable. This new series has already proven by its sales that there 
is a wide demand for a good, inexpensiye Bible. 

3. Distribution. During 193 3 the Society, through its Home and Foreign 
Agencies, issued more than 7,800,000 yolumes of Bibles, Testaments, and Por- 
tions. While these figures are lower than the circulation of pre-depression years, 
certain achievements in the distribution of the Bible occurred that are worthy of 
notice : especially that the Society distributed more complete Bibles in Japan than 
in any preceding year, that in China all Bible-distributing agencies put into cir- 
culation more complete Bibles than in any year of' evangelical effort in China, 
that the distribution of Scriptures was greater in Mexico in 193 3 than in 1932, 
that in the Upper Andes Agency more than twice as many complete Bibles were 
distributed last year than the year before, and that the number of entire Bibles 
distributed in Brazil and the Caribbean Agency during the year exceeded the 
number distributed in 193 2. The completion and dedication of two new modern 
Bible houses in Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro during 193 3 augur well for increased 
interest and efficiency in Scripture distribution in these two important countries. 

During the 118 years since its organization in 1816 the American Bible 
Society has put into circulation approximately 225,000,000 volumes of Scripture 
— a ministry in the Christian enterprise incapable of being quickly evaluated. 

4. Service to the Blind. The Society has rendered another year of impoitant 
service to those who read with their fingers in supplying "embossed" Scriptures 
at the special 25 cent-a-volume price. From the Bible House at New York, 2,969 
volumes in seven different systems were distributed during 193 3, making a total 
of 95,324 volumes distributed from headquarters during the 99 years of such 
service. A special appropriation for enlarging the work among the blind in 
Foreign Agencies was granted during the year, and an additional service was the 
publication of the Gospels of St. Matthew and St. Mark in the new Standard 
English Braille, the first portions of the Scriptures to be printed in this system. 

Universal Bible Sunday, occurring this year on December 9, will commemo- 
rate the four-hundredth anniversary of the publication of the translation of Martin 
Luther's Bible. A scholarly brochure on the significance of Luther's translation, 
together with other attractive material, will be mailed to pastors early in Novem- 
ber. 

The Society is making available to ministers and church groups a new stere- 
opticon lecture entitled "The Book Goes Forth," describing with effective pictures 
Scripture distribution work both in the United States and abroad. This lecture 
can be secured with no rental charge from any of the Agencies of the Society, 
as well as from a number of denominational lantern slide depositories. The 
Society is always glad to provide pastors with posters, leaflets, and other informa- 
tion on the Bible for use in lectures, addresses, and sermons. 

In these days of financial strain the Bible Society looks to the churches of 
America for financial support in carrying on its indispensable missionary work. 
All its financial processes are carefully examined annually by an Advisory Coun- 
cil whose representatives are officially appointed by the supporting denominations 
but like every religious agency its income has been woefully reduced. 

Your Committee respectfully presents for adoption the following resolutions: 



S6 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

WHEREAS, The American Bible Society is engaged in a missionary labor 
indispensable to the whole Christian enterprise, be it resolved: 

First: That we heartily endorse the work of the American Bible Society in 
its encouragement of a wider circulation of the Holy Scriptures; 

Second: That inasmuch as December 9, 1934, has been designated as Universal 
Bible Sunday, the ministers of this body co-operate in emphasizing the importance 
of the Holy Scriptures.

T. J. CARSON, Secretary. 



REPORT OF JUNALUSKA METHODIST ASSEMBLY 

The property of the Assembly is still in the hands of Mr. James Atkins, Jr., 
receiver, and he has given great and general satisfaction in his administration. 
He has the interests of the church at heart and is doing a great work in his dual 
capacity as receiver and as a faithful servant of the church. 

The past summer season was the best attended and most successful in many 
years. The general program was most inspiring and constructive. The many 
training schools and conferences were larger than usual and valuable and endur- 
ing results were attained. 

The time is approaching, we believe, 'when financial difficulties will be over- 
come and the x-lssembly placed upon a safe basis so that it may render permanent 
and enlarged service to the church. 

It is most gratifying that the General Conference allotted an apportionment 
of $15,000 to Assemblies, one-half of which goes to our Assembly. We under- 
stand this money is directed to carrying on the program of church work at the 
Lake and is not available for or subject to existing debts. 

The Lake Junaluska Methodist Assembly is one of the most beautiful places 
in the world and is in the center of the greatest scenic attractions of eastern 
America. It lies at the gate of the marvelous Smoky Mountains National Park. 
It is not possible to find anywhere else in the world the combination of the 
loveliest scenery, the most delightful climate, the fellowship of choice Christian 
people, great spiritual leaders, a varied, inspiring series of sermons, addresses, 
conferences, and training schools, interspersed with wholesome entertainments 
and noble music. 

We recommend that our people make their plans to go to Lake Junaluska 
next summer to insure their great enjoyment and religious growth. 

We recommend that A. W. Plyler be elected Trustee for a term of two years.

REPORT OF COMMISSION ON METHODIST 
CO-OPERATION 

The Commission met at the call of the Chairman, Rev. M. T. Plyler, in the 
editorial office of the Christian Advocate, Greensboro, N. C, on October 18, 
1934, with members present from the three Conferences, the Western North 
Carolina and the North Carolina Conferences of the M. E. Church, South, and 



Western North Carolina Conference 87 

the North Carolina Annual Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church. We 
present for your action the following items : 

1 . We are glad to report a continuation of the spirit of fraternity and 
co-operation between our churches and groups. But we believe a greater effort 
should be made, and in a more practical way, to increase our mutual fellowship 
and service. A beginning has been made in this direction through invitation to 
share in the benefits to be derived from training schools, summer conferences 
and institutes. We ought to take advantage of these opportunities for mutual 
helpfulness. 

2. We think the time has come when we should invite the Methodist Episco- 
pal Church in this state — the Blue Ridge-Atlantic Annual Conference — to mem- 
bership in this Commission. -With your approval the invitation will be extended. 

3. We are in fullest sympathy with the renewed efforts now being made by 
the several Commissions on Methodist Unification, and confidently look for- 
ward to the successful conclusion of these negotiations. While we recognize the 
difficulties that are in the way, we do not believe they are insurmountable, or 
that they will be allowed to stand in the way of ultimate union. Until such a 
time shall come, we urge our people to carry on their own work in their own 
way, working in co-operation witli each other at every possible point in every 
possible way. 

4. The spirit coming out of the Sesqui-Centennial of Methodism has given 
opportunitv for an appraisement of our common heritage and task. We wish to 
take advantage of it. To that end we suggest the setting apart of a day for 
fellowship and celebration, when we shall meet together at some central point, 
the three Methodisms taking part in the program. We suggest a day near January 
6, 1935, a historic date, as the time. And we are naming as the Committee in 
charge of all arrangements for the day: Rev. M. T. Plyler, of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, Rev. B. A. Culp, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
and Rev. S. W. Taylor, of the Methodist Protestant Church. 

5. It is our judgment that it would be better if, instead of sending fraternal 
messengers to each of our Conferences each year, we alternate, the Methodist 
Protestants alternating between the two Methodist Episcopal, South, Conferences, 
the Methodist Episcopal Conferences sending a fraternal messenger every other 
year. In the years when no messengers are sent, it is suggested that letters or 
telegrams of fraternal greeting be exchanged. If this plan meets with your ap- 
proval, we suggest that it go into effect with the Conferences meeting in 1935. 

(Signed) M. T. PLYLER, Chairman, 
C. W. BATES, Secretary. 



REPORT OF MANAGERS OF PASTORS' SCHOOL 

The 1934 Pastors' School met at Duke University June 11-22, running simul- 
taneously with the Institute of International Relations, sponsored bv the American 
Friends Service Committee and Duke University, and the Rural Church Insti- 
tute, conducted under the auspices of Duke University and the leading represen- 
tatives of eight denominations. The program of courses and addresses was of 
high order, and, together with the other institutes, attracted a larger number of 
people to the Duke University campus than any previous series of institutes have 
been able to do. The schedule of the 1934 school was changed so as to provide 
for one set of courses to run the first week of the school and another set the 
second week rather than for all the courses to run through the period of two 



88 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

weeks. There were sixty-two more credits issued in the Pastors' School classes 
than were issued in 1933. 

It is expected that the same plan of co-operation with the two above named 
institutes will be carried out in 1935 as in 19 34.

Western North Carolina Conference 89 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON FELLOWSHIP FUND 

The last session of the Western North Carolina Conference appointed a Com- 
mittee looking to the equalization of salaries in the Conference. It was not 
possible for this Committee to work out a plan during- the session of the Con- 
ference, but it suggested that certain Districts attempt to apply the principle 
suggestion to these Districts. 

The Committee submits herewith a suggested 

PLAN OF ORGANIZATION AND ADMINISTRATION 

Name: The name of this fund will be the Fellowship Fund of Western 
North Carolina Conference. 

Membership: It is recommended that all effective members of the Western 
North Carolina Conference be participating members of this fund.

provide a comfortable support for the members of our Conference who receive 
less than a reasonable salary. 

Minimum Salary: The following schedule of salaries is recommended as 
a goal : 

1. Single members $900.00 (with living - quarters). 

2. Married members $1,200.00 (and parsonage).

e. Salaries from $3,500 to $3,999 — two and one-half per cent per year. 

f. Salaries from $4,000 to $4,499 — three per cent per year. 

g. Salaries from $4,5 to $4,999— three and one-half per cent per year, 
h. Salaries from $5,000 up — four per cent per year. 

The above percentages are to be paid on salaries reported paid at the Annual 
Conference inclusive of cash income from the Conference Board of Missions. 

Administration:

Fellowship Fund Committee, composed of five participating members, 
one of whom shall be the Conference Treasurer, elected by the Annual

2. It is recommended that ten per cent of all receipts be set aside for 
emergency need. The funds thus secured to be expended for such needs 
as they arrive or at the time of the next Annual Conference. 

3. It is further recommended that the Annual Conference Committee appoint 
for each District a Committee of three pastors and the Presiding Elder, 
whose duty it shall be to investigate each pastoral charge where sub- 
minimum salaries are anticipated and recommend such appropriations to 
the Fellowship Fund Committee as will be needed to meet the minimum 
salary scale.

Memoirs 



REV. JOHN WILLIAM INGLE 

John W. Ingle, who died in Shelby Hospital, July 21, 1934, was born at 
Tryon, Georgia, January 2.6, 1872. 

He spent his early life on the farm, later entered the textile work until he 
took training at Rutherford ami Weaver Colleges. 

He was converted and joined the Methodist Church at Henrietta, N. C, when 
16 years old and was a zealous Christian thereafter. 

He was licensed to preach in 1897 and often preached for pastors and 
assisted them in revival work. He supplied the Maiden charge in 1900 and, 
joining this Conference that fall, was returned to that charge for 1901. 

He was ordained deacon in 1902 by Bishop A. Coke Smith, and elder in 
1904 by Bishop Duncan. 

For thirty years this faithful itinerant served the church in the following 
charges: Maiden, 1900-01; Cherryville, 1902-03; West End-Gastonia, 1904; 
Polkville, 1905-06; Uwharrie, 1907-08, Walnut Street, Greensboro, 1909-10; 
Lilesville, 1911-12; Bethel, Ashcville, 1913-14; Linwood, 1915-17; Murphy, 
1918-19; Spray, 1920; Stony Point, 1921-22; Shelby, Lafayette Street, 1923-24; 
Polkton, 1925-27; North Monroe, 1928; Erlanger, 1929; and Stoneville, 1930. 
At the close of that year his health was so seriously impaired that he was granted 
the superannuate relation. Brother Ingle never recovered, but with courage and 
resignation yielded to the Father's will. 

As a pastor he possessed an understanding heart and was always able to 
enter into the joys and soriows of those he served. Humility, the rarest of 
Christian graces, he possessed in a very marked degree. His citizenship in every 
community where he lived was a powerful asset for Christ and His church. His 
face was set like a flint to accomplish God's purpose in his life. 

How cheerfully and efficiently he served! 

His preaching was strong, thoughtful and edifying. His constant aim was 
to nurture believers and to save the lost. 

There was no place for compromise in his program. His friends knew where 
to find him on all ethical questions. He learned through the bleachery of the 
years to keep his feet firmly fixed on the solid rock, and was able therefore to 
lead his people into blessed experiences. He sought always to make full proof 
of his ministry and neglected no interest of the kingdom as a preacher and 
pastor. 

Brother Ingle was married January 11, 1891, to Miss Martha Ann Cooper 
of Ellenboro, N. C, who, with the three children, survives. 

Death held no terrors for him. He calmly and serenely passed on to others 
the sword he had so faithfully wielded, untarnished and laid down his com- 
mission without a stain upon it. 

In the presence of a large group of his ministerial brethren and many other 
friends the funeral was conducted from Central Church, Shefby, by his pastor, 
Dr. E. K. McLarty, assisted by his presiding elder, Rev. J. S. Hiatt, and others, 
after which the body was laid to rest at Oak Grove Church in Rutherford 
County, N. C. 

"Well done, good and faithful servant; 
Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord." 

JOHN W. MOORE.

REV. JOHN FRANKLIN KIRK 

John Franklin Kirk, the son of William Alexander and Hannah Shaver Kirk, 
was born in Rowan County, N. C, February 13, 1873. He gave his life to God 
during a revival at old Zion Church in Rowan County in 1886. In the following 
year he joined the church under the ministry of Dr. J. C. Rowe. He was married 
on June 28, 1899, to Miss Ida Ross, of Albemarle, who died January 28, 1925. 
On June 8, 1926, he married Miss Agnes Ellinwood, of Greensboro, who bound 
her life and ministry with his until he was called home in the early hours of 
the morning, September 20, 1934. 

After studying in Albemarle High School he went to Trinity College, now 
Duke University. These were the beginnings of life long participation in the 
educational interests of his church and state. Upon returning from Trinity Col- 
lege in 1895 he was made principal of Albemarle High School. Two years later 
he became headmaster of Old Trinity High School. From 1899 to 1902 he was 
a bookkeeper with the Efird Manufacturing Company in Albemarle. In 1902 
he joined the Western North Carolina Conference in which he was an active 
member until his death thirty-two years later. 

He served the following appointments: Summerfield, 1902-04; Grace, Wins- 
ton-Salem, 1905; Mocksvillc, 1906-08; Mount Airy, 1909-10; Field Secretary, 
Children's Home, Winston-Salem, 1911; Broad Street, Statesville, 1912-15; 
presiding elder, Shelby District, 1916-18; Salisbury District, 1919-20; First 
Church, Salisbury, 1921-23; West Market Street Church, Greensboro, 1924-25; 
presiding elder, Asheville District, 1926-28; Main Street Church, Thomasville, 
1929; Executive Secretary, Board of Christian Education, 1930-33; College 
Place Church, Greensboro, 19 34. 

Brother Kirk was a trustee of Duke University and of Davenport College. 
He was a director of the Children's Home in Winston-Salem and a member of 
the Conference Board of Christian Education. 

John Kirk, as his fellow-men knew him, was a well rounded man. He was 
mentally alert and physically vigorous. Endowed with intellectual capacities 
above the average, he learned how to think clearly and concisely, and he kept 
up with the thought life of his time. His spirit in truth-seeking was contagious. 
Young men who talked and lived with him were inspired with a passion to 
study and to excel in the pursuit of knowledge. 

He was a natural educator. His professional life began with teaching. When 
called to the ministry he continued to teach with truth as his subject and Christ- 
like character as his goal. As a trustee of Duke University and Davenport 
College he administered the higher education of his church. As Executive 
Secretary of the Conference Board of Christian Education he administered the 
religious education of his church. He was constantly sought as a teacher in the 
training schools and assemblies of the Conference. His local church was always 
a school of religion in the highest sense of the term. 

He was an executive. In all his educational activities he was entrusted with 
administrative responsibility. He could plan well and execute his plans. Three 
times his church appointed him to the presiding eldership. When in the pastorate 
every part of his church was galvanized to purposeful activity. He neglected 
no part of the church's program. 

He was an evangelist. He was gifted in winning people to Jesus Christ and 
in building them in the faith and in Christlike character. His revivals were not 
things apart. They were the center of his entire church program. His last year 
was one of the most fruitful of his ministry. During 1934 he received 83 into 
College Place Church. Fifty-nine of them were by profession of faith. Spiritual 
power was manifest and a number were converted in the six weeks of cottage 



152 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

prayer meeting's that preceded the special services. He personally taught two 
classes of children who were in training several weeks for church membership. 
Kirk could preach with convicting power. Though he was taken a month before 
annual Conference, the church was so imbued with his spirit that it carried on 
to completion one of the most successful years in its history. 

He lived richly and adventurously. He was a lover of men and was loved 
by them. He loved them individually, and he loved them as fellow sons of God. 
He had a passion for the justice and the righteousness of the Kingdom of God. 
One afternoon while engaged in the tender ministry of pastoral duties God called 
him suddenly. He died as he lived, at work in the service of God and man. 

He also loved God's handiwork in nature. He was at home in the fields, 
the woods, and the mountains. He had an insatiable thirst for thrilling adventures 
in the out of doors. Two months before his death he led a group of students 
of the Conference Adult Assembly to the crest of Mount Junaluska to worship 
at sunrise. As he watched the great light of heaven rise through a gothic arch 
of trees to light the mountains and the misty valleys with glories beyond descrip- 
tion John Kirk stood in rapt silence. His eyes looked into great distances. His 
face shone with a radiance more beautiful than the dawning light. Perhaps 
even then he was looking beyond the splendor of his beloved Carolina moun- 
tains to that realm of eternal beauty into which he was so soon to be called.

REV. JAMES FRANKLIN MOSER 

Rev. James Franklin Moser, son of Jason and Sarah Jane Moser, was born 
in Union County — a county which has given a large number of preachers to 
North Carolina Methodism — on April 21, 1879, and died June 10, 19 34, in 
Burrus Memorial Hospital, High Point, from injuries sustained in an automobile 
collision on highway No. 10, near Lexington, that same day. 

On November 14, 1897, he was married to Miss Mary Agnes Starnes whom 
he had known from childhood as schoolmate and friend. Fatally injured in the 
same automobile accident, Mrs. Moser died in Davidson Hospital, Lexington, 
on June 12, 1934, two days after her husband. Friends throughout childhood 
and youth, united in marriage for nearly thirty-seven years, they passed through 
the gates of death together, almost hand in hand. 

They left behind a family of ten unsusually fine children, five sons and five 
daughters: Rev. Claude Harlane Moser, Hendersonville; Dr. Stamey Everett 
Moser, Gastonia; Mrs. Bertha Moser Whisnant, Winston-Salem; David Franklin 
Moser, Kannapolis; Mrs. Annie Pearl Moser Wilson, Winston-Salem; Mrs. Ruth 
Moser Goldston, Kannapolis; Miss Pauline Reid Moser, Greensboro College; Miss 
Mary Lois Moser, Brevard College; Worth Starnes Moser, Hendersonville; and 
James Edward Moser, Gastonia. 

The Moser family circle deserves more than passing mention. In a time of 
many unhappy and broken homes, the family life in this Methodist parsonage 
was pleasingly congenial and conspicuously gratifying to behold. Parents and 
children lived in a wholesome atmosphere of affection and happiness. Even the 
married children always came home to consult their parents before making 
any important decisions. 

After being admitted on trial into the Western North Carolina Conference 
in 190 8, he served eight charges during the past twenty-six years: Connelly Springs 
Circuit, 1908-09; Forest City, 1909-13; Belwood Circuit, 1913-17; Cherryville, 
1917-23; Kannapolis, 1923-29; Burkhead, Winston-Salem, 1929-32; Coburn 
Memorial, Salisbury, 1932-33; Main Street, High Point, 1933 till June 10, 
1934. In two pastorates lie remained four years each; in two other pastorates, 
six years each. He wore well. 



Western North Carolina Conference 153 

His preparation for the ministry is a story of heroic endeavor and glorious 
self-denial. When he entered Rutherford College, there were four children in 
his home and less than one hundred dollars in his pocket. Although friends tried 
to dissuade him from entering upon four years of academic life, he refused to 
be discouraged and continued on. Even if others were counseling him to take 
the easier course, because they said it was then too late for him to undertake 
such preparation, he chose the harder and more difficult way and was able to 
leave Rutherford College owing others in money only seventy-five dollars. 

Several close friends of Brother Moser have written me that there was no 
unholy ambition in his heart. He did not seek promotion or large salaries. He 
was eager to go to the place where the bishop and the presiding elders thought 
he could do the most good. There was no hint of hesitancy or word of bitterness 
after he heard his appointment for a new year read. He accepted with such good 
grace circumstances which sometimes seemed to others rigorous and trying. He 
undertook with cheerfulness and courage whatever work was assigned to him. 

His sermons were delivered in a most sincere and earnest manner. Even when 
he was uttering convictions that were firm, his spirit was always pleasing and 
lovable. There was never any captious and biting criticism of his congregation. 
He could speak the truth in love. His people knew that he cared about them. 
He could tell them frank things about their sins. He radiated a gospel of loving 
earnestness and constant eagerness to help and brighten. His preaching was 
deeply spiritual and decidedly evangelistic. When he came into the pulpit, his 
people felt that he had recently been closeted with his Lord. Consequently, his 
preaching was most effective and his pastorates always successful. Never shall I 
forget the impression which his last sermon, preached during a revival in his 
own church, on Friday night before the accident on Saturday morning, made 
on me: his yearning spirituality, his loyalty to our Lord's high principles and 
ideals, and his loving eagerness to get us of the congregation to know our 
Lord better! 

Before writing this paper, I received letters from some of his friends saying: 
"I have never known any man who was more pleasant and agreeable"; "he 
attracted rather than repelled men"; "when he came into my office, I felt myself 
in the presence of a godly and spiritually-minded man"; "he was not guilty of 
loafing or of idle gossip, because he was always about his Father's business"; 
"I think I have never known a man who more thoroughly devoted his time and 
all his energy to his work"; "he was as nearly unselfish as any man I ever saw"; 
"no boasting spirit ever characterized his life"; "former congregations continued 
to love him long after he was sent to other pastorates"; "he was a man who 
could get close to you"; "he was constantly interested in every member of his 
church, rich and poor alike" ; "he was easy to love, because he was a friend to 
everybody" ; "no pastor was ever more popular, yet he made no compromise 
with sin"; "he shared the joys and sorrows of the members of his congregation, 
as well as those of people outside who needed him"; "his pastoral visits brought 
comfort and inspiration and hope"; "his home was so hospitable. We were 
always welcomed at the parsonage. He impressed upon us that the parsonage 
was our home, too"; "he loved folks, and they loved him." 

His body is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery, between China Grove and Kan- 
napolis, where it sleeps in a grave by the side of the road, by the side of the 
highway of life! 

He has gone, let us believe, to join the Master and his old comrades of the 
Methodist ministry in God's Other Room. 

"God buries His workmen, but continues His work." Farewell to friend and 
comrade, Moser, who is now faring on! Who follows in his train?

REV. CHARLES FLETCHER SHERRILL 

Charles Fletcher Sherrill, son of Rev. M. V. Sherrill and Martha Douglas 
Sherrill, was born at Statesville, N. C, September 22, 1861. He was converted 
under the preaching of his father and felt called to preach. 

He was prepared for college at Olin Institute, Iredell County, by Professor 
W. M. Brooks, who afterwards married Rev. C. F. Sherrill's sister. 

Mr. Sherrill taught school a few years, and then became associated with his 
brother, J. B. Sherrill, in owning and editing The Times, at Concord. 

In 1888 he was graduated from Randolph Macon College with distinction. 
During his senior year in college he served West Hanover Circuit, near Ashland, 
Virginia. 

On November 16, 1888, he was married to Miss Nannie J. Swain, of Randolph 
County, niece of Captain J. M. Odell and Mr. J. A. Odell. 

In the fall of 1888 he was admitted on trial into the traveling connection 
at the North Carolina Conference held at New Bern. He served the following 
named charges: Lenoir Station, 1888-89; Mattamuskeet Circuit, 1890-91; Beau- 
fort Station, 1891-92; Duncan Memorial Church, Ashland, Va., 1892-93; Madi- 
son Circuit, 1893-97; Franklin Station, 1897-98; Newton Circuit, 1898-1901; 
Shelby Station, 1901-04; Waynesville District, 1 904-07 j Morganton District, 
1907-08; Shelby District, 1908-09; Shelby, 1909-10; Matthews Charge, 1910- 
11; Waxhaw, 1911-12; Mount Pleasant, 1912-14; Salisbury, South Main Street, 
1914-15; Pleasant Garden, 1915-19; Wentworth, 1919-21; West Greensboro, 
1921-23. 

At the North Carolina Conference, held at Goldsboro, December 14-19, 1892, 
Brother Sherrill was transferred to the Virginia Conference, and was then ap- 
pointed to Duncan Memorial Church, Ashland, Va. This church is located on 
the campus of Randolph-Macon College. 

Within the period 1923-1933 he sustained the superannuate relation. 

From various published records there is evidence that Brother Sherrill 
rendered constructive service in the ministry. Throughout the period of thirty- 
six years in the active ministry he had the reputation of going to his appoint- 
ments without dissatisfaction and in a hopeful spirit. One who knew him inti- 
mately paid this tribute to him: "His faith in God's goodness was beautiful." 

For several years he reported the Conference proceedings for the Charlotte 
Observer, and during many years he contributed to the Charlotte Observer and 
to the Greensboro Daily Nevus a Sunday feature known as "Sabbath Meditations." 

The following is an extract from a tribute paid by J. Beverly DeShazo, M.D., 
Ridgeway, Va. : "To the hundreds, if not thousands of readers of the Sunday 
Daily News like myself, this corner which has been looked to eagerly every 
Sunday for the 'Better Life', so faithfully contributed to for 14 years by Rev. 
C. F. Sherrill, of Shelby, N. C, now, like all things earthly, ceases to be. . . . 
When we think of the years he spent, the days of each year, more the hours of 
every day he read, copied and wrote, that he might in his own way point to the 
better life, something more than a few words of praise is due for his untiring 
efforts to guide his delighted readers." 

On December 2 1, 1933, Rev. C. F. Sherrill died at his home in Shelby after 
an illness of about two years. On Friday, December 2 3, the funeral was conducted 
at the residence of Dr. E. K. McLarty, pastor of Central -Methodist Church, 
Shelby, and Dr. W. W. Peele, pastor of First Church, Charlotte. Interment was 
in the Shelby cemetery. 

Surviving are the widow; two daughters, Miss Ollie Sherrill, of Greensboro, 
and Mrs. J. D. Lineberger, of Shelby; three sons, Frank O. and James Sherrill, 
of Charlotte, and Charles Sherrill, of Roanoke, Virginia.

Western North Carolina Conference 155 

REV. MAGRUDER HILL TUTTLE 

Magruder Hill Tuttle, son of Sheriff Robert G. Tuttle and Lucinda Puett 
Turtle, was born in Caldwell County, April 7, 1859. He spent his childhood 
and youth amid trying- circumstances. At the time of his birth the war clouds 
were rapidly gathering over the nation, and ere long the war storm broke. A 
number of his family and other near relatives went to the front. Several were 
killed, others were wounded. He, with other members of the family, felt the 
terror of the war and reconstruction. 

In spite of the difficulties he faced as a lad he secured an education and 
developed traits of character that fitted him for a life of usefulness. While he 
was yet a very young man he was chosen to fill out an unexpired term of his 
father as sheriff of Caldwell County- When this term ended he was elected 
sheriff by the vote of the people. Before the two years of this term had passed, 
he was deeply impressed that his life's work was the Christian ministry. He 
resigned as sheriff and went to Randolph-Macon College for further prepara- 
tion for the great task ahead. 

He joined the North Carolina Conference which met in New Bern in 1888. 
His appointments were as follows: Yadkinville, 18 89; LaGrange, 1890; Mount 
Olive and Faison, 1891-92; Roxboro, 1893-96; Oxford, 1897-99; Henderson, 
1900-01; Hertford, 1902-04; Lenoir Circuit, 1907-08; Hartland, 1909-10; 
Franklin, 1911-13; Hamlet, 1914-17; Kinston, 1918; South Lenoir, 1920-23; 
Hudson, 1924; South Lenoir, 1925-26. 

He was supernumerary for the years 1905-06 and 1919. His active service 
in the pastorate covered a period of thirty-five years, twenty-one in the North 
Carolina Conference and fourteen in the Western North Carolina Conference. 

Magruder Tuttle was an unusually strong and helpful preacher. His sermons 
were logical, practical and inspiring. In delivery he was always forceful and 
often eloquent. Out of his own rich and abiding Christian experience he preached. 
He had an experience that began while he was young and ripened as the years 
passed. He was a close student of human nature and possessed a rare insight into 
the characters of men. Some of his greatest sermons were on Bible characters. 
This ability to analyze character fitted him to speak most appropriately at the 
many funerals he was called to hold. Also it must be said that he was a Bible 
preacher. He knew his Bible and nothing delighted him more than to unfold 
its great truths to a waiting congregation. He chose great texts and gave him- 
self without stint to the discovery and application of their deepest meaning. 
One of his favorite texts was Romans 1:14, another was Revelation 7:13, 14. 
Who that heard him preach on one of these texts can ever forget it? 

In 1886 he was married to Louisa Ervin who, through all the years, shared 
with him the hardships and privations as well as the joys and triumphs of the 
itineracy. For almost fifty years they walked together the path of life, then 
suddenly, without an hour's warning, he passed on to the heavenly land to wait 
for those left behind. To this union were born ten children. 

When he took the superannuate relation he settled in the community where 
he was born and where his early years were spent. His retirement from the 
pastorate did not mean a life of indifference and idleness. He continued to be 
deeply interested in all that concerned the people of his community and his 
nation. Frequently and gladly he preached and performed other services to the 
very end. 

While in his garden, out in God's great outdoors which he loved so much, 
he was stricken just before noon on June 27, 1934, and in about an hour 
breathed his last, being seventy-five years of age. On June 29, after brief 



156 Minutes of the Forty-fifth Session 

services in the home, his body was carried to First Church, Lenoir, where the 
funeral service was held by Rev. C. E. Rozzelle, Rev. D. A. Oakley, Rev. 
Ebenezer Myers and Rev. R. M. Courtney. His body lies in the cemetery in 
Lenoir awaiting- the resurrection morning-. R. M. COURTNEY. 



REV. MILES HENRY VESTAL 

On January 30, 1934, Miles Henry Vestal was transferred from the realm 
of time to the region of eternal bliss. He went as he had lived, with his face 
set steadfastly toward the city of God. 

He was born in Yadkin County, January 6, 1S58, the son of Isaac N. and 
Lila Vestal. 

Brother Vestal was clean in speech, in conduct, and in personal appearance. 
He believed that anyone's personal apperance was an index to his character, and 
to his soul. Humor of a wholesome nature was always enjoyed by him, but he 
frowned on all which was salacious or indecent. Brother Vestal was truly a 
Christian gentleman. Because of these beautiful traits of character, he won the 
confidence and friendship of the people he served. Friends, to him, were more 
valuable than gold or silver. He loved people and multitudes mourn his passing. 

He came from a good home. He was taught to admire the finer things of 
life, to love the beautiful, to be respectful, and to be courteous. Never, during 
his long life did he depart from this early training. From early manhood he 
saw the great need of better rural churches, schools and roads. When a young 
man in the mercantile business and on the farm, he dreamed of better days for 
his rural county. He served as representative from Yadkin County in the State 
Legislature for two terms (18S9 and 189l). After he had served his church 
for more than 30 years, he returned to his native county, and here among his 
friends and kinsfolk he lived the remainder of his days. 

He was a life-long student. He attended school at Jonesville Academy, and 
later went to Wytheville, Virginia, where he continued his school work, teaching 
part of the time, and studying, until eye-trouble forced him to leave school 
just a short time before he was to receive his degree. But he did not stop. He 
was mastered with a determination to go on and conquer, rather than quit and 
be conquered. Previous hardships and difficulties had been overcome. He was 
prepared to tackle harder tasks. He obtained a workable knowledge of Greek 
and Latin, being able to read both fluently. He loved the English classics, especi- 
ally the works of Shakespeare and Dickens. Before a glowing fire on winter 
evenings, he related how the children would sit and read and really enjoy these 
old stories from the pen of these immortals. But above all, the Bible received 
his greatest attention. All that knew him agree that he was a Bible scholar of 
no mean standing. He made it the guide-book of his life. He preached with 
power from its pages. 

He professed faith in Christ and joined the church at the age of 13. He 
related that he does not remember when he did not attend Sunday school and 
church services. He began to pray in public at the age of 16. He was brought 
up in the church, and served in every office of the local church, including that 
of class leader and Sunday school superintendent. 

On January 16, 1879, he was united in marriage to Victoria Haynes. To this 
union were born 10 children. The widow and eight children survive. 

He joined the Western North Carolina Conference in Asheville in 1891. 
He has faithfully served the following appointments: Watauga Circuit, Stokes 
Circuit, Davie Charge, Farmington Circuit, Mt. Zion Station, King's Mountain 
Station, Davidson Charge, Walkertown Station, Presiding Elder of North Wilkes- 



Western North Carolina Conference 157 

boro District for four years, Matthews Charge, Waxhaw Station, and Epworth, 
Concord. With the passing of Brother Vestal the church has lost a faithful 
servant, a good preacher; the community has been deprived of a noble citizen; 
and a home is minus a loyal husband and a devoted father. 



"Servant of God, well done, 
Rest from thy loved employ." 



HEROINES OF THE PARSONAGE 



I. L. SHARPE. 



MRS. JAMES FRANKLIN MOSER 

Mrs. James Franklin Moser, born January 31, 1878, died June 12, 1934, 
from injuries sustained in an automobile wreck in which her husband also was 
killed. She was married November 4, 1897, to Rev. J. F. Moser and shared with 
him for long years the joys and sorrows of an itinerant. She kept the home fires 
burning and trained her children to love and fear the Lord. No sacrifice was 
too great for her to make when the interests of her husband and children were 
involved. She lived a beautiful life and when the end came she was ready to 
meet her Lord. 



MRS. J. D. CARPENTER 

Mrs. J. D. Carpenter was born September 6, 1848, daughter of Babel Moore, 
of Burke County. She was married to Rev. J. D. Carpenter July 5, 1866, and 
for thirty-eight years was his faithful helpmeet and co-laborer in the Gospel 
until his death in 1904. Her faith was radiant and she was constant in her 
ministry of service to the lost and sorrowing as long as she lived. She passed to 
her eternal reward this year, 1934.

RECENT BOOKS ON SUBJECTS 
OF RELIGION 



THE RENEWING GOSPEL 

An Interpretation of Chris- 
tianity for the Present Day 

By Walter Russell Bowie 

Doctor Bowie show9 the power of old 
familiar truths In solving the diffi- 
culties of a bewildered world. Con- 
structive help is given at the crucial 
points of personal doubt, intellectual 
difficulty, dealings with the social 
order, and contemporary problems. 

$2.00 



THUS PRAY YE 

By James I. Vance, D.D. 

Dr. Vance's latest work Is on the 
important subject of the "Lord's 
Prayer," the title of which has been 
taken from the words In which Jesus 
Introduced the Prayer "Thus pray 
ya" As is true of everything Dr. 
Vance writes, it Is full of deep spir- 
itual insight and knowledge of the 
human heart. 

$1.00 



SHIPS OF PEARL 

By F. W. Boreham 

Here again readers of any of Doctor 
Boreham's previous twenty-eight books 
will find that penetration, humor, and 
charm for which he has become so 
widely known and appreciated. 

$1.75 



THE POWER TO SEE IT 
THROUGH 

By 



THE BASIC BELIEFS OF JESUS 

(The Cole Lectures 1935) 

By Bishop Paul E. Kern 

What did Jesus believe? The author finds 
the answer not in any formal creed but in 
the Life behind the creed. Pew contempo- 
rary writers have attempted this incisive 
study. Bishop Kern does — and gives us a 
book in which are many elements of 
freshness and greatness. 

$2.00 



GOD AND THE COMMON LIFE 

(A Religious Book Club Selection) 

By Robert L. Calhoun 

Doctor Calhoun has written this book on 
the assumption that religion and the 
everyday business of living belong together 
and that a philosophy of life is something 
that cannot be put to one side to be con- 
sidered only when convenient, 

$2.50 



LUKE THE EVANGELIST 

A Study of His Purpose 

By Wilfrid L. Hannam 

Sir Josiah Stamp, G.C.B., distinguished 
British economist and director of the 
Bank of England, says, "Mr. Hannam's 
book combines real scholarship with the 
most human and appealing writing. Its 
touches of real insight and freshness of 
outlook make it valuable to the widest 
range of readers — no mind so simple or 
so wise that it will not profit." 

$1.50 



Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick A GOD-CENTERED FAITH 



The increasing demand for Dr. Fes- 
dick's sermons in published form calls 
for this volume which contains twenty- 
five sermons now for the first time 
available in book form. Like the 
two earlier volumes, the book con- 
tains inspirational messages, char- 
acteristically simple, that deal with 
problems, hopes, and desires that 
characterize our modern day. 

$1.50 



By Hugh Thomson Kerr, D.D. 

Dr. Kerr is widely known as a clear, re- 
freshing preacher whose work is never 
pedantic. This latest volume of the Stone 
Lectures (Princeton) for 1935 will enhance 
Dr. Kerr's reputation and at the same 
time constitute a valuable appraisal of the 
root values of the Church of which he is 
a recognized leader.
